The Appalachian Academy is hosting a fundraising 3 on 3 tournament on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at the South Charleston Recreation Center.
The Appalachian Academy is a program of not only intervention and treatment, but allows for the opportunity to be preventative in the improvement of the lives and academic success of children who are at-risk. The program collaborates with area South Charleston (Kanawha County) schools to identify academically at-risk children who live in poverty with behavioral issues. Appalachian Academy offers tutoring, play therapy, and mentoring to develop coping skills and promote better behavioral outcomes at school. Appalachian Academy is an opportunity for children to interact and share experiences in a safe and nurturing environment, while cultivating self-efficacy and learning valuable preventative behaviors.
The tournament is for 3rd through 12th grade. And there is also an Open Division. There will also be a Dunking Contest at Half Time.
The event will provide summer programming for 30 middle school scholars including: sports camps, social emotional intelligence, photograpy, theater, music, art, poetry, career building, and much more.
