The United Learning After-school Program has served the Louisville area for over 30 years. The United Learning After-school Program empowers students to achieve academic success, build new
life skills, and develop social and emotional competency. We offer a safe and supportive environment where students can work on homework and school assignments with supervision and support. This enrichment program also provides opportunities for youth to expand their skills and knowledge while also developing their academic and social skills. Together with students, we develop projects that help us to build community, learn new skills, and explore issues that interest students.
The United Learning Program takes a whole-child approach to youth success by focusing on three main goal areas: (1) academic achievement, (2) skill-building, and (3) social and emotional learning (SEL). We strive to meet the goals of the program by providing academic support through tutoring and homework help; enrichment in a number of areas including STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), culinary arts, visual and performing arts, wellness and fitness, and service learning; and SEL-based activities such as community building games, anti-bullying initiatives, conflict resolution, role playing, and family-centered communication and support.
Currently we are able to receive buses to our location from all JCPS Magnet and Optional Schools, Elementary Cluster 12 (Chenoweth, Field, Shelby, Breck Frank, King, Portland, and Atkinson), and Meyzeek Middle School.
The program operates from 3:00pm – 6:00pm, Monday – Friday and follows the JCPS schedule. We are a proud partner of the BLOCS (Building Louisville’s Out-of-School Time Coordinated System) Network. BLOCS is a “partnership of Louisville education, government, and community impact organizations striving to improve opportunities for youth”. We are funded, in part, by Metro United Way and Louisville Metro Office for Resilience and Community Services.
The United Learning Youth Program strives to foster an environment of inclusiveness, celebrate and nurture diversity, and provide trauma-informed and culturally sensitive programming for all students.
