Mission & Vision

Our Role

Our role and responsibility is to grow, enhance and strengthen our present programs and to reach out to the greater Los Angeles community to build partnerships before and after school.

Mission

The mission of the Beyond the Bell Branch is to ensure that all children and youth in LAUSD have access to high quality, safe, and supervised academic, enrichment, and recreation programs that inspire learning and achievement beyond the regular school day (before and after school and Saturdays).

Vision

Every child and youth should have a safe place to be in the presence of a responsible, caring adult with engaging activities that support achievement and promote social, emotional, physical development beyond the regular school day.

Evaluation

Evaluation is a critical part of all expanded day programs and each component of an out-of-school program must be evaluated based on a set of performance indicators.

Program Components

After School Education & Safety (ASES), 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC), Ready, Set, Go!, Youth Services, Outdoor and Environmental Education, Music and Entertainment Education programs provide a safe place for students to go after school, as well as opportunities for education and enrichment. The three components of the programs include:

  1. Academic Tutorial Program: Students study subjects such as Reading, Math, Writing, Science, Social Studies, and Computers. In addition, high school ASSETS Programs focus on college preparation and job readiness.
  2. Recreational Program: Students participate in physical activities including Intramural Sports, Structured Physical Activity, Dance, and Aerobics.
  3. Enrichment Program: Students participate in classes such as Life Skills, Art, Cooking, and Music.

What a difference after school makes!
