Winfield Community Education facilitates life-long learning activities for adults and children to improve their lives and their communities. Family involvement and community partners are an integral part in assuring the success of students. Academics are improved through the use of technology, the arts, and career technical activities.
Community Education helps local citizens, schools, agencies, and institutions to become active partners in addressing education and community concerns by improving the quality of life in their communities. Community Education also provides many extras needed to provide students with the tools they need to be successful. Community Education offers a broad array of activities and enhances academics in providing quality assistance in the following areas:
Journeys After-School Program
Journeys Summer Enrichment Program
Adult Continuing Education
Curriculum Enrichment and Alignment
Professional Development Opportunities
Habitat for Humanity enjoys being a community partner with Journeys, Winfield City Schools’ After School & Summer Programs. Our Winfield City High School Campus Chapter members spend time tutoring students and assisting with homework as well as conducting Habitat for Humanity projects and programs to educate our students about the importance of community service and giving back to others. Our Executive Director, Teressa Clark, also serves on the advisory board for the school program.Image
