Keeping Kids on Track

3 August 2016

Summer may still be in full swing, but The Y on Granby is busy planning the TRACK before-and-after-school program for the upcoming school year. Serving the Park Place community of Norfolk for more than ten years, the Tutoring Recreation and Afterschool Club for Kids (TRACK) provides holistic programming to encourage the cognitive, physical, and social development of children. TRACK engages approximately 84 students in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math activities weekly through partnerships with Park Place Child Life Center, the Fawn Street Gardening Community, The Walking Classroom, and The First Tee. Volunteers from Old Dominion University’s Pi Beta Phi Philanthropy Sorority serve as mentors and role models while tutoring students in reading and math. TRACK is provided at no cost to eligible families, ensuring all children have a safe, quality, and engaging place to learn, grow and thrive. Currently TRACK is offered to students of James Monroe Elementary and Park Place Schools.
