What is The Learning ZONE?

"Tell me and I'll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I'll understand." -Native American Proverb

A Place for Kids

The Learning ZONE is an after-school mentoring program that assists families by providing their children with the support they need to succeed in school and life. Program activities are designed to develop students’ academic, spiritual, social, physical, creative and emotional potential. Daily tutoring in age-appropriate school subjects, computer skills development, American history & culture and Biblically-based life lessons in areas such as hygiene, fitness, clean & healthy eating and etiquette are just a few key program components. Field trips, family events and other special gatherings throughout the school year make The Learning ZONE a fun, community-building endeavor.

For the 2014-15 school year, The Learning ZONE will be serving 1st grade through 8th grade students. 
Each subsequent year, the program will expand to include another grade level. In 2015-16, 1st grade through 9th grade will be served. 

By 2018, The Learning ZONE will be able to accommodate grades 1 though 12, allowing participating students to continue in the program until they graduate from high school.

The Learning ZONE is sponsored by the Westside Vineyard Christian Fellowship. All who serve in the program have completed a training process and full background check.

The Learning ZONE is a place kids can call their own. A place where they can be themselves and discover themselves. Here, their eyes are opened to opportunities they never knew they had.


Answering the Call

The Learning ZONE after-school program is an answer to Jesus’ call to “Let the little children come to Me” (Luke 18:16). Our vision is to partner with students and their families at the elementary school level, with the goal of mentoring those children all the way through high school graduation. As a holistic ministry, we collaborate with parents to meet academic, social, spiritual and emotional needs with the primary goal of seeing each child reach their potential by building a strong spiritual and character foundation.

Many kids today are facing significant challenges in reading, language and math. Furthermore, there are oftentimes "the little things" missing... those things usually taken for granted... a healthy after-school snack, a parent available, a safe place to play and be with friends. The Learning ZONE is where those needs - and more - are met.



A CHILD’S TESTIMONY

“I love The Learning ZONE because the helpers always have our backs
when we have trouble with homework.  Also, I want to thank you for
making The Learning ZONE possible because if it didn't exist we wouldn't
have fun playing in The Park and with the computers.
Thank you for letting The Learning ZONE have snacks because we
would starve and probably feel sick without them.
I really enjoy everything here and it was just because of you."
