There's much to learn about Tech Generation Learning Center After School Club. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
The Promising After-School Programs Study, a study of about 3,000 low-income, ethnically-diverse elementary and middle school students, found that those who regularly attended high-quality programs over two years demonstrated gains of up to 20 percentiles and 12 percentiles in standardized math test scores respectively, compared to their peers who were unsupervised during the after school hours.
Research shows the most dangerous times for children and teens to get involved in risky behaviors is after school between the hours of 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. The time when parents may not be home from work or school and children may be without adult supervision.

Decreased Risky Behaviors: A meta-analysis by the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL), reviewing close to six dozen studies of after school programs, found that students who participated in an after school program exhibited significant improvement in their feelings and attitudes and indicators of behavioral adjustment. Students in programs also saw reductions in drug use and problem behavior, such as aggression, noncompliance, and conduct problems.
In the era of COVID-19, Tech Generation Learning Center (TGLC) can help parents and schools by providing a safe community-based after school program and flexible learning model. Our Center provides students with 1:1 access to laptop computers and connectivity. TGLC offers tutoring services from qualified teachers for after school students in 4-hour learning sessions offered Monday-Friday from 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM. We also offer extended learning sessions to meet parents' needs. Academic tutors assist students with completing their homework and school assignments while at the center to keep them from falling behind. Our staff follows the CDC recommendations for social distancing, hand-washing, cleaning, sanitizing, and wearing masks and gloves daily. TGLC is licensed by the MSDH. We accept childcare certificates.
Through a partnership with the "Doing Good Matters" Foundation, TGLC offers free healthy snacks and hot meals to students enrolled in our After School, Extended Learning and Summer Camp programs. Children can concentrate best on learning when their stomachs are not empty. Our After School students receive a healthy snack when they arrive. They are also served a hot supper in the after school program. One of kiddos favorite meals is chicken spaghetti with a green salad, whole wheat toast, mandarin oranges, milk and water. We care deeply about our students health and nutrition and offer a variety of healthy menu choices weekly. Research shows that 1 in 4 Mississippians go to bed hungry. Source: FeedingAmerica.org

Our summer production "I Know Who I Am" bullying prevention play was a huge success. Campers learned how to act and interact together saying their lines in a believable way. Campers learned about wardrobe selection for difference scenes. They learned voice projection, timing, set designs and much more. We have a brand new play production planned for this summer.
"Be a Vet for a Day" is just one of the many STEM career fields our campers will explore this summer. Our summer campers will be exposed to a wide variety of STEM activities and careers by taking field trips to colleges and universities, cooperative extension outings, farms, museums, parks, and aquarium.
