Chacun cherche sa cote (Dewey) | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Empowered -- After School - Susan B. Neuman | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Good programs nurture children's talents, expose them to interesting people, and set tough-love standards of behavior. The interaction among play work, and intense study reinforces children's growing self-efficacy social development, and sense of commitment to and place in their community. All these skills are tied to students' ability to achieve, become successful in life, and form stable relationships of their own.
