Back in June, we kicked off a virtual afterschool pilot for middle school students at For Oak Cliff. Participating teens created their own logo and named the new program BOOM DAS-IT (Building Opportunities & Opening Minds Dallas AfterSchool Innovative Teens).
Despite social distancing, students engaged with one another virtually, participated in weekly challenges, and used creative expression activities to help cope with challenges brought on by COVID-19. Best of all, students had a great time! Check out this video created by the students
We look forward to expanding on this success this fall!
