At the Roger Clap Elementary, we work with a variety of community partnerships within Boston to offer our students and their families opportunities to support them. These partnerships provide students with the foundation to be successful in and out of the classroom. Many of these opportunities support the rigorous curriculum followed within the classroom.
These partnerships include:
Winning Every Student is a Non-Profit organization which offers tutoring, mentoring and intervention for students so that they may Win in every area of their life.
The Home for Little Wanderers helps build stable lives and hopeful futures for children who are abused, neglected or at-risk.
Catie’s Closet give students living in poverty the ability to discreetly pick and choose the clothing and basic necessities they need, and are proud to wear.
Playtime is kids’ time. But schools can and should create play environments that help kids be their best. Studies show that recess matters: a thoughtful approach to recess improves children’s physical health and social and emotional learning.
Playworks helps schools and districts make the most of recess through on-site staffing, consultative support, professional development, free resources, and more. We also support youth programs and other organizations that wish to improve playtime. Organizations like The Centers for Disease Control, and City Year all look to Playworks to inform practice and policy.
Boston Music Project (BMP) is a creative youth development program committed to ensuring the long-term social and musical success of urban youth by nurturing individual expression, celebrating unique cultures, and developing life skills through quality education and performance.
The Mary May Binney Wakefield Arboretum provides educational opportunities, tours, presentations, workshops, hands-on training, internships and other programs covering a variety of subjects, including local history, ecology, horticulture, agriculture, archival work and historic preservation.
Boston Save: Boston Saves is a children’s savings account program that helps families of BPS students save and plan for their children’s college or career training from K2 kindergarten onward.
Long-term relationships. We all know what they mean to us. Comfort, support, feeling known for who we really are. That’s what we at St. Stephen’s Youth Programs provide to our young people and their families. Long-term relationships give students a vision for the future, and the tools and direction they need to get there.
