The San Juan Unified School District's Bridges After-School/ASSETs Programs provide homework support, enrichment and pro-social recreation in a safe and positive environment. The Bridges After-School/ASSETs Programs currently serve approximately 3,000 students, grades K-12, in 29 programs at 28 sites. Student success is supported through the implementation of each of the four components of the program: Homework support, enrichment/disguised learning, pro-social skills/recreation, and parent support and empowerment. Strong relationships between program staff, school staff, parents and students are key!
