Project Promise After School Program

Welcome to the NASD Project Promise funded by the 21st cclc federal grant.

Newfound Area School District 21st Century Community Learning Centers PROJECT PROMISE is a cohort of high-quality after-school programs in five of the six school sites serving the towns of Alexandria, Bridgewater, Bristol, Danbury, Groton, and Hebron.

The focus of Project Promise is to improve academic achievement in literacy and math, increase access to physical and nutritional educational programs, and infuse concepts of global learning to help students develop the knowledge of life-long habits and dispositions needed to understand others perspectives and their own connections to their community and the world.

Project Promise programs meet after school for three hours Monday through Friday. Students participate daily in homework help, targeted academic assistance,  and select from a rotating menu of clubs and activities. Clubs integrate writing skills, personal development, and specific skills to support gaining global awareness.
