AAA After School Program
From September through May of every year, NCC’s AAA After School Tutoring Program operates five days a week for the duration of the school year. We focus on our children’s spiritual and academic enrichment as well as creatively incorporating the arts to develop and encourage creative skills. Retired certified public school teachers lead our programs along with help from tutors and committed volunteers. Students receive assistance with homework, academic enrichment drills and exercises to improve math skills. Students receive increased technological skills through daily access to a computer lab and time set aside for increased reading and literacy development. Once a week, students also receive instruction in the arts through NCC’s partnership with local visual artists, dancers, musicians and writers from within our community.
Additional Tutoring After School
From September through May of every year, NCC provides after school tutoring on Monday and Tuesday at First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS. Church members and high school students come together to offer assistance each week.
Adopt-a-Family for Christmas to provide Christmas gifts for NCC children who otherwise would not receive gifts. Sponsor a child for a month in our after-school tutoring for $40 as a way to honor your friends and family. We will notify them of your gift.
Mr. Marshall Magee provides music instruction to the children at NCC’s Ash Street Center every Friday. This is a good time for all the children to participate and enjoy singing and music on a regular basis.
Created specifically for the needs of K-2nd graders, NCC Prep acts as a practical solution to the underdeveloped skills of young children in our community as they prepare to enter kindergarten. During this program we spend 5 weeks every summer providing developmentally appropriate experiences to enhance a child’s intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual and physical development through fun, hands-on activities. *Students in these summer programs receive academic instruction 7 hours a day, 5 days a week for 5 weeks as well as a healthy breakfast, lunch and snacks on a daily basis. In addition to academics, we teach our students practical life skills and well as exposing them to a variety of speakers from our community in order to provide a variety of influences for each child.*
Georgetown home repair and elderly and disabled assistance is provided as we are able to help our community.
The Exceptional Leadership After School Program at Peyton’s House is for 6th – 12th grade boys. The purpose is to promote spiritual, educational and relational growth for inner-city middle and high school young men. It includes cross-cultural experiences through retreats and field trips and service opportunities in the community. Although our funds are currently too low to add young ladies to our Exceptional Leadership Program, we are praying that God will provide the means to begin this program in the near future using meeting rooms in the Jackson Medical Mall along with Peyton’s House.
Super Stars for Christ
Every summer, NCC provides instruction in Bible Study, academic enrichment, to at-risk children (grades 3rd-12th.) for a period of 5 weeks. Every year, certified public school teachers, teacher’s assistants and volunteers come together to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through building relationships with over 100 students (and their parents) through active participation in academics, athletics and the arts. *Students in these summer programs receive academic instruction 7 hours a day, 5 days a week for 5 weeks as well as a healthy breakfast, lunch and snacks on a daily basis. In addition to academics, we teach our students practical life skills and well as exposing them to a variety of speakers from our community in order to provide a variety of influences for each child.*
