Who we are

Established in 2000, Broad Street Achievement Programs (BSA) is licensed academic enrichment program providing afterschool services for kindergartners through 12th graders. The program operates Monday through Thursday from 3:00pm to 6:00pm.

Our Vision

Our vision is to ensure that youth in the Broad Street Presbyterian Church (BSPC) community are prepared for high school graduation and successful transition to post-secondary education or the workforce.  Our goals are:

  • To provide academic support through homework assistance, one-on-one reading and math tutoring, on line learning and engaging hands-on learning experiences
  • To create a structured program environment in which participants and volunteers can develop, be healthy, safe, inclusive, and happy
  • To provide academic support, individualized homework help and tutoring
  • To deliver programming that supports the development of essential life skills (goal setting, self-motivation and time management)
  • To promote healthy eating habits through nutrition education and providing nutritious snacks and meal

When a student first enters our program, we conduct a math and reading assessment to determine each student’s academic level. We then tailor an individual academic enrichment plan for each student. We provide homework assistance and one-on-one tutoring to help students reach their academic goals. We also prepare & provide a healthy snack as well as a hot meal through Children’s Hunger Alliance**. In addition to academic enrichment, BSA program offers weekly nutrition education lessons in collaboration with the Broad Street Food Pantry.

From mid-June through mid-August we provide an academically enriched summer program called Camp Discovery. The program consists of daily academic lessons in Reading, Math and Science with an educational, physical fitness and field trip every Friday. Come back to this site for 2018 details!

Without the help from dedicated volunteers we could not provide the quality programming to the student we serve.  Volunteers are a crucial part of everything we do. They work one-on-one with students helping them with homework or enriching activities as well as assist with special projects such as our monthly community meal. Individuals can volunteer as little as one day per week for one hour.  Although consistency is the key when working with children, we value any time a volunteer can share. If you are interested, we ask that you commit to a set amount of time whether that be a month, a quarter or the entire school year. As an Ohio Department of Job and Family Services licensed program there are certain requirements that must be fulfilled by all BSA volunteers.  Below are links to the volunteer application form, the medical form and non-conviction statement which are required documents needed to volunteer.  Additionally you would need to provide a copy of your high school or college diploma. For High School students who wish to volunteer only the volunteer Application form and the Non Conviction Statement is needed.  For more information, contact Francine Marchelle at 614-221-6552 Ext. 254.

Afterschool programming is a proven tool to help students stay on track academically, have consistent attendance in school and stay out of trouble. We are able to provide this valuable service because of the generous support of our donors. All proceeds we receive help us continue providing quality afterschool and summer programming for youth in our community. Thank you!
