TIER 2: S.W.A.R.M.-After School/Weekend Programs

SWARM is the after school/weekend program component of Advent. National trends are showing that out of school time is the most risky time for children and youth, and the increase in need for these types of programs are overwhelming. Our goal with SWARM is to partner with Title 1 schools, low-income apartment/HUD communities, and the city to create quality after school programs. Quality to us means programs that include S.T.E.M. academics, project based learning, social skill/youth development, and physical fitness.

Current Status of this TIER:

December 2011: We have met with Spanish Square Apartments (formerly Dayton Square) in Haltom City about starting a SWARM program in January 2012. They have graciously offered a few recreation rooms at the complex for our program to meet in. We are looking for volunteers to help us clean up and beautify these rooms as we look to launch in January 2012. If you are interested please contact us at murphyrjb@gmail.com
