PBHA's Chinatown Afterschool Program

Purpose Statement

Chinatown Afterschool is a tutoring and enrichment program which serves children in the Chinatown area who are in grades 1 through 6. Our volunteers strive to provide a safe, educational, and enriching environment for the children each program day. Each grade of approximately 10 students is led by 2 or 3 volunteers. Homework help and tutoring are the focus of the first hour of program, followed by an hour of creative enrichment activities designed by each counselor group (individual attention is combined with cooperative group activities). Field trips and other program-wide activities outside of the classroom are planned throughout the semester. If you would like to make a difference by serving as a mentor and role model for these awesome kids, please check out our website (www.hcs.harvard.edu/~chtnasp) or Weijie Huang (huang13@fas), Annie Chang (achang2@wellesley.edu), Lauren Herman (herman@fas), or Emily Parrott (parrott2@fas).
