Burlington Housing Authority's After School program serves children grades K-12, of whom most are residents of the Housing Authority. The mission of this program is "to improve the academic performance of the children we serve and to encourage respect and discipline."
This program offers a safe environment and supervised activities Monday through Thursday during the school year, including homework assistance, remedial tutoring, outdoor play, educational games, and cultural trips.
BHA employs residents to tutor children enrolled in the After School program. Residents are provided assistance through volunteerism. BHA also partners with Elon University through the Kernodle Center for Service Learning and the Leaders in Collaborative Service (LINCS) program for volunteers.
