Tutor: Alma MΓ©ndez

Β 

During the month January,Β enFAMILIA Everglades Path to Success continued to provide tutoring via Zoom for its middle school students. This methodology has allowed students to receive individual support to complete iReady and home learning assignments. Students who have been impacted by COVID are unable to attend our afterschool program. As a result, they can connect virtually in an efficient way. Furthermore, this allows the students to receive the help they need and allows them to complete assignments in a timely manner. This approach also helps the students at the afterschool program because of the individualized assistance that is guaranteed by the instructor in small group sessions.Β

NURTURING PARENTING PROGRAM

9 NPP- January 2022 Report

Director: Zoila Silva

enFAMILIA is pleased to serve farmworkers and low-income families within our community. Providing free parenting classes such as Fatherhood and Nurturing Parenting allows for better outreach to the people we want to serve. The goal is for parents to form positive relationships with their children. The classes are for parents and their children from birth to 11 years of age. By attending the classes, parents learn how to evaluate their abilities and strengthen their nurturing parenting as a lifestyle.

Parents are provided with information about community resources, should they need it. For example, enFAMILIA offers English classes, summer camp and therapy services among other programs. They give referrals to the different community agencies and follow-ups are done with each family.

At this time, parenting classes are offered at Redondo Elementary and Everglades Camp Association. We call our parents a day before to remind them of the class, making our groups very successful.

EVERGLADES CAMP

Community agencies have collaborated with our center significantly. Everglades Community Association donated 10 gallons of paint to cover the two units that are used for our tutoring program. Parents volunteered their time and collaborated in painting and arranging the classrooms. This has established a clean and organized environment where children can efficiently receive support to complete home learning assignments and eat healthy snacks. It is a safe place where parents pick up their children after a long and hard-working day as farmworkers.

Our student garden progress. Gardening allows students to develop responsibility from caring for their plants, teamwork, understanding, and creativity.
