G2M Memberships & Sponsorships

G2M (Growing Great Minds) Out-of-School Learning Programs provide a range of high-quality services to support student learning and development, including tutoring and mentoring, homework help, academic enrichment (such as hands-on science or technology programs), community service opportunities, as well as music, arts, sports, and cultural activities. At the same time, centers help working parents by providing a safe environment for students. The following elementary schools have regularly scheduled out-of-school enrichment programs: GD Jones, Hawthorn Hills, John Marshall, Grant, Lincoln, Stettin, Thomas Jefferson and Riverview. Both Horace Mann and John Muir middle schools have programming as well as the EEA Learning Academy.

The cost for membership is $5 per year per child, or $10 maximum per family. This is not intended to be a barrier to participation. Families are asked to pay, as they are able. At the elementary level, this membership fee will cover full participation in “Kids on the Grow Programs” and at the middle school level will cover enrichment activities such as, but not limited to EXTREME Robotics, Full Body Fitness, Computer Coding, Yoga, Jig Making, and Pay It Forward/Leadership Club. Whether your child attends one class or several, this is a one-time annual fee.

Please note that this membership fee is separate from and should not be confused with any athletic fees, membership fees for outside community agencies or other site-specific special programs or events. It also does not include costs for summer programs. We will continue to offer tutorial or teacher recommended academic programs free of charge. Programming at EEA and Lincoln Elementary are funded by the 21st Century CLC grant. so do not have membership fees. A schedule of class offering and registration is handled at the individual sites.
