The Youth Development Department of Ella Austin Community Center is a year-round project, composed of two programs: the After School Program and the Summer Enrichment Program.

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

The After School Program offers homework assistance to students, aged 6 – 14 years of age (Elementary – Middle School grades). It provides educational and recreational activities, fine arts (art, music, drama, and creative writing), library usage, and a computer lab.

Students are provided with after-school hot meals catered by the San Antonio Food Bank.

Positive self-esteem is promoted through motivational speakers, field trips to college campuses, and the celebration of cultures.

The program tracks the academic development of each student by observing their grade cards and progress reports from their schools. Academic development is a very crucial component of the After School Program and degreed/certified staff offer tutoring to youth in areas where they may be academically deficient. Additionally, recreation, socialization skills, positive self-esteem, and character building are promoted in the program.

Tuition-free scholarships for our Youth Development Programs are available for youth ages 6-15.

SUMMER ENRICHMENT PROGRAM

The Summer Enrichment Program occurs during the summer months. Youth have a daily schedule that provides time for sports and recreation, board games, problem-solving/brain teaser activities, physical fitness, fine arts (which usually includes a drama or musical production by summer’s end), computer lab, and library usage, a book club, motivational speakers, field trips and career exploration.

Youth are provided with lunch and an afternoon snack each day.

Participants' academic skills are enhanced by practices and drills in subjects of the grade level that they have just completed using the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) curriculum.

STEM PROGRAM

Ella Austin Community Center incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math into all of its youth programs.

We also offer a year-round Science and Math Academy for qualified eleven- to fifteen-year-olds in partnership with St. Philip’s College, The Center of Excellence for Mathematics, and for Sciences. The academy focuses on fun topics with high-demand careers such as engineering, biotechnology, game design, alternative energy, chemistry, environmental science, and more.

Friday Electives

A unique opportunity for your child to discover new passions at a young age!

Children have no creative bounds and an infinite bank of questions.

Their creativity, curiosity, and imagination need to be celebrated and fostered in schools and we are so excited to be able to offer elective classes every Friday for our children as an avenue in which to do this.

Every semester, our students will get to choose an elective to explore new passions and areas of interest. The first semester of every year will feature electives that are teacher-created and derived from the passion areas of our incredibly creative and diverse staff. As we learn more about our student's interests and passions in our first semester, we will work to design electives for our second semester that more closely mirror our students' passions and interests.
