CLUB TESH - AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

The After School Program promotes self-esteem by celebrating the unique abilities of each child. We support developing necessary life skills that promote optimum independence and success. Children involved in this program are at a crucial point in self-development. The goal of the program is to provide a one-on-one learning opportunity for each child in a positive atmosphere.

The after-school program is available at Tesh or in the community. Tesh is available to work with parents, guardians, caregivers, teachers, school systems, and others involved in the life of an eligible individual—whether funded through Medicaid or self-pay.
