United Learning Day Program
UCHM has provided after-school youth programs to the Louisville community for over 20 years. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, UCHM is altering its current youth programming in order to meet the changing needs of students. In the 20-21 school year, UCHM will provide academic and social support to students in grades K-8 through our newly designed United Learning Day Program. Through this program parents can sign their student up for on-site academic and social support at UCHM in 2-hour blocks, up to two days a week Tuesday or Thursday from 9am – 12pm or 1pm-4pm. This program is for students who are enrolled in school and participating fully in virtual learning. The program begins August 31 and will continue until JCPS resumes in-person classes. We provide support in the following ways:
- NTI Guidance – Working one-on-one with staff and volunteers, students will receive additional support as they work through NTI assignments. Our goal is to provide encouragement, guidance and support as they work through classroom assignments. UCHM will provide technology and the internet.
- Tutoring – UCHM staff will communicate with parents and teachers to identify areas that students may need additional support. Staff and volunteers will work with the student one-on-one to develop skills in the identified area for improvement.
- Social Support – UCHM will provide much-needed social support to students by providing daily wellness check-ins. These check-ins will allow staff to gauge how a student may be doing emotionally and socially. Additional program activities will be developed to provide social support to children. Virtual group activities, group discussions, etc. When needed UCHM staff will refer students to additional resources.
COVID Safety Measures:
