What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

A-STEP - After School Tutorial and Enrichment Program

The mission of A-STEP is to empower children to find meaning in their lives by equipping them with educational and social skills that will assist them as they grow into productive adults. Through A-STEP we provide tutoring, homework assistance, physical health activities, computer classes, social skills building, field trips, and other enriching activities that help prepare students in grades K-8 for school and life.

Population(s) Served

SEP is designed to meet the educational and social needs of inner-city youth from various Pittsburgh neighborhoods during the summer months as a complement to A-STEsafe activities in five target areas including academics, arts, community/civic engagement, business development and health/wellness.  All program activities promote learning and positive interaction with peers and adult leaders during the crucial summer months.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Consolidate our after school programming into one homogeneous system.
Create a curriculum based on STEM education, Financial Literacy, Art and Wellness for our after school and summer programming.
Create a workforce development program for individuals ages 16 and up.
Form a separate, entity tasked to create a commercial development designed to retain our local population and attract middle class African American families.

We have recently purchased a new facility that can hold our central headquarters and around 250 children. When we move into our new facility we will use the new curriculum to forge a homogeneous out of school time program for our current student population. Once that is completed we will form a project team to determine the best benefit our commercial property will have on the community.

We are in the process of closing on our new property and putting the finishing touches on the new curriculum. Currently we are researching the most effective way to execute a workforce development program. We have listed another asset of our for sale that will pay for the necessary building renovations and we are in the process of forming a project team for our commercial development.

We have accomplished the purchase of our new facility and the STEM component of our curriculum. We have yet to accomplish any renovation, and the Financial Literacy, Art and workforce development programming pieces are incomplete. We cannot begin to plan for our commercial development until we have relocated to our new building.
