Greenville Explorers will provide:

Technical assistance: We will help children navigate their technology and log into any virtual programs needed. 

Learning Space: Students will have an area with internet connection, outlets and access to supplies.

Group guided assistance: Students will be assisted in connecting with their virtual eLearning SCDOE teacher for the times required by their grade, school, and enrolled program. Counselors will monitor our explorers in a group setting as they engage with their eLearning teachers. The team will offer immediate assistance when needed, relay information to parents regarding their classwork, and supervise their virtual eLearning participation.

During after-school care, we travel the globe through an interdisciplinary study of countries and cultures around the world. Through hands-on activities, lessons, and discovery classes, we teach our explorers to discover their global community. As a result of this experience, our students relate back to their own culture and heritage to discover what makes them a unique and valued global citizen.
