Stockert Youth & Community Center offers professional tutoring from former teachers at this year’s after-school program

BUCKHANNON – The Stockert Youth and Community Center staff are encouraging families to register for its after-school program.

Debora Brockleman, executive director of SYCC, updated the SYCC board on their summer program and closely approaching after-school program during their Aug. 4 meeting.

“We’ve had a really good summer; we’ve had various field trips to Hovatters, we went to Green Bank Observatory, we went to the Riverwalk a couple of times, we’re just they’ve been busy,” Brockleman said. “We’ve also had a talent show this week and they’re so cute, they’re just absolutely so cute.”

SYCC staff is getting the building ready for the after-school programming.

“We’re getting the building ready for after school, getting back into shape, and we probably need some extra cleaning and that kind of thing,” Brockleman said. “We are accepting registrations for the ’22-23 school year and soon our rec desk capabilities will be changing.”

Rec Desk is the online service SYCC uses to book reservations and sign up for programming.

“People can use Rec Desk to sign up for birthday parties or our basketball program and now they’ll be able to pay their bills online,” Brockelman said. “Now I won’t have to mail their bills anymore. I can just email them separately.”

She said they already have about 40 children registered for SYCC’s after-school program, but she anticipated at least 40 more sign-ups soon. (Sign up here.)

“We are licensed for 60, but some kids don’t come every day; there’s only a few that come every single day, some just come four days, some three days, if all ad kids show up we have Plan B and they allow for that,” Brockleman said.

Two new tutors will also be joining SYCC for the upcoming school year.

“We have two former teachers that are going to offer tutoring after school, Destiny Brady and Andrea Westfall,” Brockleman said. “They’re going to be offering individual tutoring and sometimes groups. They’re doing this with us because at some point they want to have their own tutoring business and they want to have their storefront, so they wanted to start out with us and get familiar with the community, see what the community needs and, in the meantime, we have professional tutors.”
