United Learning Day Program Application
The United Crescent Hill Ministries United Learning Youth Day Program is a partnership between youth, their families, their schools, and our staff and volunteers. The overarching goal of the United Learning program is to help students achieve academic success and develop positive behaviors and relationships with peers and adults. The COVID-19 pandemic has posed many challenges to students and their families. Our newly-designed Day Program provides a safe and supportive environment, equipped with the necessary technology, where students can complete assignments (Non-traditional Instruction) with the guidance and encouragement of UCHM volunteer and staff. In addition, we provide opportunities for youth to expand their skills and knowledge, build confidence, and develop positive social and emotional learning skills. In order to ensure the safety of students, staff, volunteers and their families, we strictly follow up-to-date guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and local public health officials.
During the school year, UCHM uses peer tutors to work with the youth in addition to staff and adult volunteers. Each peer tutor is at least three grades ahead of any child the tutor helps. The peer tutors are excellent students who have been interviewed by our staff and approved to volunteer in our program for a designated time period. UCHM also utilizes adult volunteers to assist students with homework help as well as provide assistance with general program activities. All volunteers are screened during a background check and provided training.
UCHM’s United Learning Day program serves Kindergarten – Eighth Grade (K-8) children and operates in two-hour blocks (one morning and one afternoon) Monday – Thursday following the Jefferson County Public School (JCPS) Calendar. Final times for the two-hour blocks will be determined following additional guidance from JCPS regarding the synchronous/asynchronous schedule. At this time we ask that you reserve your desired morning and/or afternoon when applying. You may apply for up to TWO two-hour blocks per week. We ask that you keep your selected blocks the same for each week throughout the NTI schedule.
There is no fee for the United Learning Day Program.
