ExPLORES After School Program



Our goal for Elementary ExPLORES (Experiential Playing and Learning of Rantoul Elementary Students) After-school program is to provide K-5 students at Eastlawn, Northview and Pleasant Acres with a safe place to participate in fun, educational, hands-on experiences that reinforce their learning and while increasing their understanding and appreciation of others. We believe that this program will: 1. Provide engaging academic experiences that value diversity and the cultural context of our community; 2. Expose students to careers and experiences through the use of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Project Based Learning, STEM, Community Volunteers and our local partners and; 3. Increase student knowledge in all areas of arts and academics through hands-on, real-world experiences. The program runs daily from 2:30-5:00 in six week sessions. Looking for volunteers to teach 50 mins sessions 2, 3 or 5 days a week. Volunteers choose a topic of interest to them (and to students). Some examples are crochet, book club, engineering with legos, etc. Also need volunteers to assist people teaching sessions or to assist students with homework or in the game room.
