2020 has been a challenging year for the youth as they transitioned from attending school during the week to staying home for online learning. This school year has been the new-normal as children all around the world are waking up, getting dressed and headed to their computers to log in for class. Some children are more fortunate then others with having access to the internet, assistance from a guardian, meals, and a systematic plan set in place for their future success. On the other hand, many parents are working longer hours to make ends meet, and just do not have the time or money to be there for their children’s education advancement. 2 Sisters of First Water comes into play for those parents in need and is delivering a one -stop shop where your children can stay and learn all day with after-school hours.
Reading plays a major part in the development of any child. Young Black males have tested least high in that area and is without a doubt a leading cause to a later effect of mass incarceration, unemployment and many more setbacks.
“A 2017 report by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) found that just 18 percent of Black eighth-graders reach reading “proficiency.” And in 2015 NAEP found that only 17 percent of Black 12th graders were proficient at reading. This means that during normal times, fewer than two out of every ten African-American high school graduates have the baseline skills they need to succeed. Compare that to the nearly half of White 12th graders who tested “proficient,” a rate about three times higher than that of Black high school seniors” https://www.thecrisismagazine.com/
The lack of teachers, teacher’s aides, and funding has created a downward decline in adequate learning in inner cities. This convenient and brilliant program is welcoming to children of Fulton county, DeKalb County, and Clayton County school districts. The founders of the program are two sisters from Georgia, Missy and Deborah Peyton. The mission of their program is to make sure each student they meet is enriched and empowered. Their initiative is to assist parents with relieving some of the pressure regarding monitoring their children’s education completion at home. First Water is not a school, the program is set in place to help children stay focused on completing their homework and studying. The children will be monitored by the instructors at the program and will be exposed to learning in a comfortable and calm atmosphere.
There is also a after school program and an anti-bullying course with counselors on site to listen to any concerns that children may want to discuss.
This is the perfect environment for your children! The founders of First Water are highly professional, experienced with children, and are running a top-notch program where the needs of the youth come first.
