LEAD PROGRAM STAFF
Students are engaged daily in curriculum that combines fun lesson plans with Project Based Learning (PBL). PBL helps students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to research and answer a complex question, problem, or challenge. Students use science, technology, engineering, mathematics, art, writing, and reading to investigate and respond to the challenge.
Every day, the members are required to participate in one (1) hour of physical activity. These recreational activities are strategically planned by incorporating CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) program to get involved. CATCH is the most proven program to prevent childhood obesity and launch kids and communities toward healthier lifestyles.
