We are pleased to announce that the East Bay Asian Youth Center (EBAYC) will serve as lead agency for the after school program at Frick Impact Academy beginning the 16-17 school year. EBAYC is a community-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with the mission to support youth to be safe, smart and socially responsible. EBAYC envisions youth to be life-long builders of a just and compassionate multicultural society.
EBAYC currently partners with 15 schools (Bella Vista Elementary, Cleveland Elementary, Franklin Elementary, Garfield Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, Manzanita Community, La Escuelita K-8, Roosevelt Middle School, Dewey Academy, Oakland High School, Oakland International High School, and MetWest), serving over 2500 students and families in Oakland. Beginning Fall of 2016, we will begin working with students and families at Edna Brewer Middle School, Frick Impact Academy, and Urban Promise Academy.
EBAYC at Frick Impact Academy will serve 6th through 8th grade students in the after school program. Program goals include implementing activities to address diverse students’ needs, support students’ self-esteem and leadership through enrichment, provide academic support and college and career workshops. The program will provide a safe environment where students can continue to learn and explore academically, physically, socially and emotionally.
- Academic Program:
- This year, we have 5 Academic Mentors dedicated to working with students to improve their academic performances, expose them to new subjects/ideas, and serve as a positive role model. Our Academic Mentors support students Monday through Friday. We work closely with our Academic Liaison to create and implement curriculum lesson plans that best meet the need of the students and align with Frick, the school district, and state requirements.
