High School students are welcome to join us at any of our eight church locations. They can receive academic support from 2:15-3:30 and stay to help out and earn up to two service hours. They can earn one for working with elementary and one hour for working with the middle school students.
Elementary students can come to any of our 8 locations (with the exception of 180House which is a youth only location) when they get out of school at 3:15. After completing homework, students are allowed to stay to play, read or do projects until 5pm. They may stay later if they have a middle school sibling.
Middle school students are welcome at any of our 8 locations where they will receive at least an hour of academic support after they get out of school at 4:15 and come to one of our locations with the opportunity to stay until 6:00 pm.
The COVID-19 crisis has caused a decline in both attendance and academic progress in schools across the nation. Avenue941 partnered with the School District of Manatee County to provide free support after school for students who need it most.
The goal is to create a "MASH" location in each neighborhood in community buildings and churches within walking distance of students of all Title 1 schools in SDMC.
Our staff is trained to support students in small group settings and provide individual support to help students complete homework or schoolwork that they may have missed due to absences from school.
The school district has hired a teacher for each location to support students and who has necessary experience with the SDMC software and websites students may use for class.
The school district will provide dinner for students from a title 1 school who attend each MASH Initiative location after school and students also have access to brand new laptops while they are at our churches.
Thank you to the Manatee Community Foundation for providing 36 laptops and 3 carts for three of our new sites.
