Botetourt County, Va., after school program makes a difference for English language learners
The saying goes — it takes a village to raise a child and one local program is reaching out to children of immigrants. Orchard Hills Achievement Center in Botetourt County, Virginia, has grown from a one-day-a-week summer program to year-round. When students in the "Homework Helps" program arrive at Orchard Hills Achievement Center after school, they don't immediately pull out assignments and start working. They first have a snack and spend some time talking with their classroom volunteer. This is how they build relationships one child at a time.
