Program

Policy

Girls Inc. of Delaware is able to offer our After School Programs for free with a small charge for supplies due to the funding we have received.  This funding requires that we accomplish certain goals in our After School Programs.  As a result, we are not your typical after school program.  From 3:30 p.m. (pick up starts) to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, we deliver mission based programs designed to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold. 

 

To participate in our After School Program, your daughter will need to attend a minimum of 3 days per week and until 5:30 each day to ensure that she receives the full-benefit of the programs we provide.  If you are unable to make that commitment, we are not the program for you at this time.  We hope you’ll keep us in mind for the future. 

 

In addition, you and your daughter must be prepared to comply with the behavioral agreement.  Our program sites are “no bullying” zones and require good behavior to ensure we are able to fulfill our mission.  Our staff will let you know if your daughter is having trouble behaving appropriately and she will have an opportunity to improve her behavior.  In order for all the girls to thrive and succeed, it’s important that they support the creation of a positive learning environment. 

If you support the work we are trying to do to make a difference in the lives of all the girls we serve, then we can’t wait for your daughter to begin attending our programs.
