The Stewpot offers no-cost wrap-around programs for low- and extremely low-income housed families with children under the age of 18.
Children and Youth Program
The Stewpot’s Children and Youth Program offers year-round weekly activities that encourage students from low- and extremely low-income households to stay in school, improve academic performance, and make positive choices for their future.
During the school year, Saturday Kids’ Club (grades 1-5) meets on Saturdays, and Junior Crew (grades 6-8) and Venturing Crew (grades 9-12) meet Wednesday evenings. Tutoring is available for students 6th-12th grade during the Wednesday programming. The Summer Day Camp (grades 1-12) offers programming weekdays over seven weeks during the summer. If you're interested in volunteering for any of these programs, you can fill out an application.
In the 2021-2022 school year, 100% of our high school seniors graduated, and 100% of our students advanced to the next grade level.
College and Career Readiness - Mentoring Program: High school students have the opportunity to be paired with a mentor of interested academic/career background. This experience allows students to get unique insight into their career aspirations through their mentor's personal and professional experiences. If you're interested in becoming a mentor, sign-up here.
