Growing Young Minds (GYM)
Our after school program is called (GYM) short for Growing Young Minds located in the Westlake area of Downtown Los Angeles at Hoover Street Elementary School. The program serves 65 children ages 4 to 11 Monday through Friday from 2pm to 6pm. We focus on character building teaching children respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, trustworthiness and citizenship. We are an enrichment program that besides tutoring and sports we also give the children dance, drama, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math), nutrition and exercise. We also build a community with parents by having family events like picnics at the park during the year, thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.
