Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago
The After School Program at Easter Seals will provide high quality, educationally-enhanced programming for their children at the close of the school day. Funding of this proposal will support two additional staff members and will result in increased enrollment in the program. Additionally, Easter Seals will enhance programming through the purchase of new program equipment and supplies and, more importantly, a partnership with Best Buddies Illinois (BBIL) that will provide a Peer Buddy to each After School Program participant with which he/she can engage in regularly scheduled After School Program activities, communicate via telephone and email, and attend special BBIL social events.
