When the school closure announcement came out in March, we were quick to take action. We spent the last day of school preparing our students for at-home learning, and we began transitioning to online platforms.

During these past two months of remote learning, GECRC has assisted schools with communications to our families; we’ve gone out into the neighborhoods and apartment complexes to see our students, and we are connecting local community organizations and businesses that want to help our students with academic and food resources. And although our after school program can’t exist at a physical location, we are still serving our mission to help our students strengthen their academic and social skills through virtual support, using Google Classroom, tutoring conferences, and social meet ups.

This remote support will continue into the summer months. Our summer school program will look a little different this year, but we will still aim to provide the same connection, support and care that is the standard of our program.
