GIRLS ONLY LITERATURE CIRCLE
“Making Words Come to Life”
At the Village of Hope we believe students with a solid literacy foundation will have high academic achievement. We offer a “girls only” literature circle which provides a way for students to engage in critical thinking and reflection as they read, discuss and respond to books.
Much time and effort is spent in preparing students for post-secondary education. Some of the activities are: providing information about colleges/universities; completion of admissions, financial aid, and scholarship applications as well as campus visits.
CULTURAL & SOCIAL EXPERIENCES
A variety of cultural and social enrichment activities are provided for Village of Hope participants. These activities include museum and state park visits, theaters, movies, festivals as well as opportunities for participants to give back to their community through service learning and volunteer activities.
