The Neighborhood Outreach Connection has opened a new program center at Cordillo Courts in Hilton Head’s south island area to provide after-school tutoring and access to the Beaufort County School District’s computerized education-reinforcement curriculum to 120 children in the area who are enrolled in the public schools. As with NOC’s other program centers, this after-school program is led by teachers through a partnership agreement with the Beaufort County School District, with assistance from adult and high school volunteers. The after-school program runs from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m., Monday through Thursday. While space is limited, students living in Cordillo Courts, Woodhaven, or The Hedges (approx. 300 apartments) are eligible to sign up for the program.
Beginning in September 2014, NOC plans to expand programs at Cordillo Courts to include a pre-school program and adult classes (English language). In addition, periodic health and vision/hearing screenings will be provided in conjunction with Beaufort Memorial Hospital, Volunteers in Medicine, and the Lions Club.
Volunteers are encouraged to become a part of this valuable service to this underserved community.
