EAGLE After-school

Empowering for Academic Growth and Leadership Excellence

Stamford launches ‘EAGLE’ to help Haitian students soar

EAGLE Student Mentoring, Inc. runs an after-school program, focusing on youth and leadership development in a safe after-school environment.

How does EAGLE work?

We understand the complex and unique challenges language learners face with learning and acquiring the English language.  Our after-school model combines the instruction and reinforcement of educational skills with exposure to field & immersion work to build life skills.

EAGLE developed its ESL/ELL after-school program by using Professor Krashen’s learning & acquisition theory.  EAGLE Fun Fact:  Dr. Kristina Lawson, EAGLE’s Program ELL 1:1 Advisor had the benefit of learning and taking a course with Professor Krashen in California.

EAGLE's Learning & Acquisition Model

EAGLE’s goal is to enhance student confidence through program activities, in partnership with community-based organizations and local school sites.  Throughout the years, EAGLE has developed a vibrant network of community linkages to advance its mission.
