We have been so blessed to partner with the Boys & Girls Club in recent years to host an Olathe unit of their before and after school program for students. We currently host 150 students ages 5-18 from 6:30-8 AM before school and 2-7 PM after school. When school is not in session (breaks, summer vacation, and some holidays) the club is open 6:30 AM – 6 PM, Monday – Friday.
In 2017, the Olathe Unit was recognized for its outstanding achievement among Greater Kansas City clubs for its successful Kansas Reading Roadmap (KRR) program. Olathe Unit students nearly doubled their reading competency skills over the course of the summer program, leading KRR to name the Olathe Unit as Program of the Year!
We are currently developing new growth opportunities alongside the Boys and Girls Club program, and we’re thrilled to have them as partners in the ongoing expansion of our ministries to the Olathe community. More exciting info to come on this collaborative effort!
