What It’s Like to Work at ERfC:
Each ERfC School-Age Center is run by a Center Administrator who supervises
the Team Leaders and children. We maintain one Team Leader for every 10
students. The JFK After School serves children in grades 6-8. The School-Age
Centers at Nathan Hale, Enfield Street, Barnard, and Hazardville serve
grades K-5. Each center typically enrolls 40-50 students.
School program allows children to work off some energy in the school gym
before starting the day with a healthy breakfast.
A typical After
School day begins with attendance and a snack. Then children divide into
groups of 8-10, each led by a Team Leader, and rotate through scheduled
activities, including indoor and outdoor sports activities, homework time,
arts and crafts, and a wide variety of enrichment activities.
staff are passionate about our mission to help kids learn, reach their
goals, and contribute to their communities. Our programs support kids and
families in making real, measurable progress. This means our staff gain
real, practical experience in delivering academic and enrichment
programming—as well as the satisfaction that comes from changing lives.
No wonder many of our Team Leaders come back year after year!
