Parent, Eagles Roar Afterschool Program

One of my favorite things about the afterschool program is how they not only keep me in the loop about what my child's homework is, and how he is doing in class, but the biggest thing I have noticed in my son, is the change in his behavior. They are really teaching him how to be more respectful during the school day.

Higher Ground teaches our students leadership skills, acting appropriately in the classroom and in the yard. Higher Ground helps us teach the children that the rules are the same across the board [also] staffs are committed to helping and go above and beyond the call of duty.

My favorite thing in after school program is doing exercises that make my body strong. I think that it makes me a better student so I can be healthy and strong!



"I truly believe that HG brings a lot to the Oakland Community and hope that this continues. We are so in need of organization like Higher Ground that are willing to help students learn and grow."
