Who we are

Established in 2000, licensed in the State of Ohio, Broad Street Achievement (BSA) programs provide out-of-school academic enrichment services for K-8 youth (ages 5-13) and their families. In addition, our program director sponsors internships for high school students (ages 14 and up).

Broad Street Achievement Programs provides free academic and healthy living development programming for families with youth ages 5-13 (grade levels K-8). These opportunities provide youth a safe and appropriate space for academic learning, one-to-one schoolwork coaching, and afterschool extended learning time. Our current program services are as follows:

Our Vision

BSA will help prepare youth in the Broad Street Presbyterian Church community for high school graduation, successful transition to post-secondary education, and the workforce.

Our Mission is to create a structured program environment in which participants can develop as inclusive, healthy, safe, and happy citizens.

Our Goal is to deliver quality programming that supports the development of essential life skills (academic achievement, healthy living, and career achievement).

Our Primary Objectives are to:

  • Academic Assessment: Through personalized pre-, interim-, and post-assessments, develop academic enrichment plans in support of 100% of our program youth’s academic skills improvement.
  • Academic Enrichment: Through homework assistance, reading and math tutoring, hands-on and on line learning experiences, provide 100% academic achievement support to youth and families.
  • Healthy Living Promotion: Through nutrition education, recreational physical fitness, and the provision of nutritious meals, support 100% promotion of our youth and families’ health and wellness habits.
  • Social Learning: Through our character building, inter-generational service, and artwork projects, provide 100% social emotional support for our youth.
  • Coaching: Match 100% of our youth with individually assigned coaches who will facilitate each youth’s successful achievement in our programs.
  • Resources: We partner with our other outreach programs. Other programs include Food Pantry, COMPASS, Legal Clinic, and Minor Home Repairs. Select here to learn more about those services.

We consider all volunteers and employees to be staff members of our program. Our program volunteers and employees must first attend a group interview, then an orientation training, and finally an onboarding session. Accepted Volunteers or employees will be required to complete a staff information form and background check. Minimum education requirement is a high school diploma. In addition, all staff will be required to complete a 1-hour Child Abuse and COVID-19 Safety training.

Though paid employees are important to the direct services we provide for the full program days, volunteers are crucial to the work we do. Without volunteers, we would struggle to provide quality programming. Therefore, we require volunteers to commit a minimum of one day per week, one hour each day, for at least an entire semester.
