Address family Challenges
The T.A.G. Before and After School Program is located at the RISE Learning Center on the south side of Indianapolis. The staff are trained in providing the least restrictive alternatives when the children are having a critical moment. The team makes sure that therapeutic engagement is happening at all times. We utilize our four principles throughout our program to maintain focus on enhancing the lives of our children. These principles include: Education, Recreation, Vocational and Leisure skills training. Volunteer opportunities are available.
We have themed camps set up on the interim breaks that are both fun and engaging to our children. We are accepting children of all abilities for fun and learning experience. We feel this exposure will enhance the opportunities for children that join our camp. An added feature to our camp will be in-house therapeutic services to aid our families. We feel that offering services in house will be a convenient opportunity for children and families. We will offer
- Camp from 8am -3:45pm (Pick-up by 4pm)
_Mental Health Counseling
We are also a site for Summer Servings which provides food for the children in the local community. Volunteer opportunities are available.
The Akers Group is rooted in helping children and families through difficult situations by providing positive choices and fostering positive attitudes.
We believe that our children should have as many learning opportunities as possible. Children need extra practice and the chance to explore in a stimulating environment that encourages pro-active communication with care and concern that is socially acceptable in their chosen community.
We believe that children should have physical activity every day. This activity should be focused on maintaining positive health while encouraging growth both physically and mentally. Recreation should be fun, challenging and physically appropriate. Most activities should be transferable to the children's natural environment.
We believe that children should have a discernible skill at the level that they can participate independently in a home or work environment. Our vocational practice promotes choice and a sense of pride on task completion with an understanding of skill building and pro social function.
We believe that proper leisure skills are important for children to learn and practice often. We teach children to have suitable leisure skills that transfer to the home or living environment. Proper leisure skills can also be utilized for pro – social behavioral training and maintaining ones emotions through coping mechanisms and identifying what makes a child angry.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and enhance the opportunities of the children we serve.
