The relationship that YOKE enjoys with local schools involves more than simply using their space for our after school clubs. It really is a partnership. As an after school club, YOKE has a teacher sponsor at each school. Our team works closely with these sponsors, as well as with the administration at each school, to choose a day and a time for the club that best meets the school’s needs. Throughout the school year, teachers and administrators readily come to us for help with projects, events or special needs. They recommend students to YOKE and often point out students who need extra attention. Sometimes, when a crisis arises, we are among the first people that they call.
Here’s one story of how YOKE is helping to transform our local schools.
