Universal Afterschool Programs

This initiative will engage Ward 7 youth effectively after school and during summer, striving to connect all youth to high-quality afterschool opportunities of their choice at no or minimal cost to families. Programs include life skills courses, STEM programs, family book clubs, and civic engagement activities. These programs will also focus on preventing educational loss during summer months and correcting educational losses that occurred during the pandemic.

Decreasing Truancy

Ward 7 has witnessed an increase in students opting not to attend school after the COVID-19 pandemic, during which students were expected to attend school remotely. Nate advocates for special outreach initiatives targeted at students with records of chronic absenteeism that provide incentives for school attendance.
