Reading, Resilience, and Relationships in Afterschool Programs
THE NEW 3Rs is a program and research study which examines whether the addition of resilience and relationship building skills in any way influences the outcome of an existing literacy program for third through fifth grade students.
Whereas RAVE-O addresses the cognitive and developmental components of literacy, The New 3Rs increases students' self-confidence and social skills by helping them to build strong relationships with adults and other children. Staff may play games, lead team or skill building exercises, or tutor and mentor children during the afterschool program.
• Build strong connections with students, so they can learn how to build similar connections with other people in their lives
