Last month we began a new project with the
For Oak Cliff (FOC)
community center. Dallas Afterschool is piloting its new virtual afterschool app featuring curriculum and resources designed for middle school students to safely stay engaged and continue learning. The platform was designed with the students in mind. FOC students even named our new app and designed the logo!
To bridge the technology gap, Chrome Books and internet hotspots were given to students participating in the program. Dallas Afterschool also trained parents and FOC staff on how to make the most of this new tool.
Special thanks to the
Expanding Opportunities Fund, the
Rainwater Charitable Foundation, and the
North Texas Cares collaborative for making this possible!
