Boxerwood is not just for the school day anymore. We work almost every day with youth enrolled in local afterschool programs. These school-based programs primarily serve youth from low-income communities: —we ensure nature is part of their enrichment mix.
At an elementary school in Buena Vista, more than forty children each week participate in our Nature, Recycling, and STEM Clubs.
Meanwhile, our new partnership with Maury River Middle School, called SPLASH! (Students Pursuing Learning and Adventure in STEM Happenings), takes youth to creeks and rivers as adventurers and budding environmental scientists.
More than 400 lives have been impacted by our after school programs, and we hope to keep this number growing.
