This is a unique approach that is helping our at-risk students stay on track and excel in their studies. The two-hour program includes tutoring, homework time, and a variety of other activities, including Navajo Culture Class, arts and crafts, exercise, music and much more.

We thank everyone involved in helping to make this a success.
