Throughout the program, youth will collaborate with ExcelGDS staff and develop individualized educational plans to help them reach their potential in an academic setting. After-school tutors assist youth with their homework, assignments, and provide strategies to improve time management, study habits, and overall school performance. Students in our education and training learn and practice skills that prepare them for diverse higher-level education and training opportunities. Youth are also trained in computer programs, such as Google Suite, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. We provide opportunities for hands-on learning, and for applying career, leadership and personal skills in real-world environments. Participants build their skills by developing projects, attending, as well as participating in public events.
