Middle School Age

Cameo Club

Cameo Club is a resident’s only after school program located in the community center of a housing property in Willimantic, CT called Village Heights. The children that participate in this program are generally between the ages of 7 and 12. This is an at-risk population based on the economic, educational and social disparities experienced by marginalized populations.  Many of these children perform at low literacy rates and are in need of help with homework, health education, self-esteem building and physical activity. This program aims to engage and educate the youth population at Village Heights by giving them a safe and encouraging environment to learn and play. Specifically we are promoting awareness of healthy eating, hygiene and exercise so that the children will be better able to grow and develop with the resources they have available. *REGISTRATION COMING SOON*

Windham Middle School After School Program

This program provides middle school students an opportunity to strengthen their English learning language skills as well as have fun while doing a wide range of activities such as dancing, cultural cooking, art lesson swimming and sports after school.
