Jan. 10, 2011 - PRLog -- The new year started with the a "bang" at the J.C. Coleman Foundation. During the Christmas break, the foundation received a check from the Adler Family Foundation for $1500 to be used as the J.C. Coleman Foundation deems necessary. Currently, the foundation plans to purchase instructional materials, such as workbooks, computer programs, arts and crafts, and bulletin board materials. Educational group games will also be purchased. Additionally, monies will be set aside for field trips. The foundation is so excited to have received this generous contribution.

The surveys we administer to the after school kids show positive results. One hundred percent answered affirmatively to four categories: improved overall grades, improved grades in core classes, listening to the tutors and volunteers, and treating tutors and volunteers with respect. Ninety-four percent answered affirmatively to two categories: turning in homework and having a good time in the after school program. Eighty-eight percent say their attitude toward school has improved. And eighty¬one percent say they talk to their parents about their after school experience.

The progress reports that were turned in showed improvement in at least one class. The results are as follows: improvement in one class was fourteen percent, improvement in two classes was forty-three percent, improvement in three classes was twenty- nine percent, and the improvement in four classes was fourteen percent.

The hard work of the J.C. Coleman after school program held at the John S. Delaware Center has paid off. The variety of opportunities such as homework help, tutoring, enrichment activities, volunteer services, community outreach, and fund-raising activities has made this afterschool program a very strong program. The Adler donation, the survey results and the progress reports speak highly of what the foundation is trying to accomplish.  The J.C. Coleman Foundation is proud of it's after school program and of it's kids!
