Studies have shown that students that participate in after-school and summer programs are less likely to participate in risky behaviors such as gang violence, sexual activities, and bullying.

29203 area has high gun violence and is one of the unhealthiest zip codes in the state. 

RPHYDP will give parents options of affordable after-school and summer care for elementary and middle school students. Jobs and volunteer opportunities for high school students and college students in the area.

 

Crisis Intervention is available for families and students. Our services will transform and shape the entire student as a whole meaning mind, body, school,  home, and neighborhood.

Impact on Elementary and Middle School Students: Safe space after school for homework assistance, tutoring, meals and snacks, family meetings to discuss how they can improve or any issues they see in their neighborhoods, and social-emotional activities such as games.

Impact High School Students: Providing apprenticeships, volunteer opportunities, and a paid internship. These programs will make great use of the students' idle time and lessen the possibility of criminal behavior and make better decisions when it comes to peer pressure.

Parent Involvement: Parent meetings to assess their child's needs, child improvements, and parent participation within the programs. RPHYDP will be a liaison between the parents and the schools.

Community Involvement: Providing community wellness activities and vital information to keep the community informed.
