Academic Enrichment

Academic Enrichment Program
Monday through Friday, from 3:30 – 6:00 p.m. on site at 719 N. Massachusetts Avenue                                                                                  Performing well academically when life is chaotic isn’t fun, easy or desirable. But we want to see our kids do better.

The Academic Enrichment Program (AEP) exists to give children of the Parker Street Neighborhood the opportunity and resources they need to excel in school.

Children participate in small group classrooms enjoying supplemental and math and reading skills; homework help and Bible study in a safe, structured and nurturing environment. Staff partners with schools and parents to ensure adequate support is provided.

This program is volunteer and staff supported – which means we need YOUR help to keep it going. Just two hours a week, once a week could make all the difference in the world for a kid in our neighborhood. Let us know how you can help.


Summer  Bridge Camp

Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. 8 weeks during June – August

Parker Street Ministries’ Summer Camp gives the kids in the neighborhood a fun and creative outlet for all that summertime energy in a structured and well-supervised environment. It also is intended to bridge the devastating summer learning gap.

Students participate in a myriad of extracurricular activities – art, cooking, sewing, sports and wood-working – as well as Bible lessons, one-on-one reading and math skill-building activities; and field trip experiences. All this fun occurs in a safe environment shielded from the temptations and dangers of the neighborhood.

Like AEP, Parker Street Ministries’ Summer Camp is volunteer and staff supported. How can you help?

– Put your teenager to work doing some community service

– Donate your time and talents to teaching the kids in our neighborhood a new hobby
