Our mission is to repair, cultivate and uplift children in ALL situations by providing recreational & educational programs and opportunities while always intentionally pointing them towards life with Jesus!
In a time where we are surrounded by great uncertainties, our goal is to provide a SAFE, HEALTHY and HELPFUL learning and growing environment for children!
The Exchange Youth Virtual Assistance Program provides a full-day program that is intentionally created and structured to help children successfully complete their virtual school day while parents and guardians finish their work days!
The Virtual Assistance Program is available Monday-Friday from 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM for grades K-6 within the CMS School System.
During these hours, children will engage with their teachers in a quiet and stable environment as necessary via canvas, google, zoom meetings, etc. This will take place under trained supervision from our dedicated team at The Exchange!
On a daily basis students will participate in their classroom lessons and work on their daily assignments while receiving assistance if necessary!
Children will be separated by age group:
GROUP A: K-1st
GROUP B: 2nd-3rd
GROUP C: 4th - 6th
When live lessons are over, children will then enter into our "after-school" program. Our after-school program will run from 3:00pm-6:00pm. This time includes...snack, art, technology time, enrichment activities and more!
