OUT OF SCHOOL TIME PROGRAM
A NETWORK OF EXTENDED DAY LEARNING PROGRAMS
Victory Generation holistically cultivates, strengthens, and develops the social, emotional intelligence and cognitive skills of Boston’s youth 5 – 12 years of age.
What is the Victory Generation Out-of-School Time Program?
The Victory Generation Out-of-School Time Program (VG), is a network of faith-based extended day learning programs geographically dispersed throughout the city of Boston. The goal of every site in our network (“affiliated program”) is to provide quality, affordable services to low-income children ages 5 – 12 in the communities where they live.
VG serves as an intermediary to our affiliated programs by helping to build the capacity of their programmatic and organizational functions. We provide networking and financial support, professional development workshops and technical assistance to our affiliated programs as well as other churches interested in or currently providing extended day learning program services to youth. The goal is to build strong staff who serve as positive role models for their students. VG also provides workshops and training to help parents learn how to advocate for their children and how to build positive relationships with their children’s schools.
Victory Generation Staff
In order to strengthen the work of our faith-based after-school programs, VG staff:
provide extensive technical assistance, professional development workshops & training
help create a network of community organizations committed to nurturing, educating, and advancing the social development of the communities’ children.
build a learning community by hosting Faith-Based Roundtable meetings the second Wednesday of every month to convene local faith-based after-school programs and dialogue around issues affecting programming, children, and families.
mobilize church and community members to work with the students at VG program sites

Our Victory Generation Affiliate Sites
VG program affiliates provide after-school programming that advances academic enrichment, social skills development, and cultural and historical awareness.
Our goals are to increase each child’s self-esteem and expectations, help them build positive relationships with peers and adults, and support them in achieving academic success.
The programs we support also seek to identify problems that interfere with a child’s learning and then work to either solve them or make needed referrals.
VG affiliates seek to serve all children and families who want to take part in their programs. We encourage our affiliates to charge reasonable fees on a sliding scale and also provide advice and help on how to get scholarships.
