Jordan WRAP Program

What is LB WRAP?

LB WRAP Program, Winners Reaching Amazing Potential, is funded by a 21st CenturyCommunityLearningCentergrant given to the school district. The purpose of the program is to help youth improve academically and provide them a safe place to be after school, participating in fun and enriching activities.

Academic Improvement Component

The academic support component deals mainly with tutoring and homework assistance. Most tutoring focuses on core subjects, especially English and Math. However, WRAP does provide some support in Science, History, and other subjects students may be struggling with during the regular school day. Homework assistance can be given by a college aide, a peer, or by a teacher and is usually not a paid position.

Enrichment Component

The enrichment component is disguised learning. We focus on ensuring students are safe, have fun, and learn. Youth related crime in Long Beachpeaks right after school between the hours of 3:00pm-6:00pmright after school. The WRAP program provides students an alternative and an opportunity to enrich their lives through positive forms of learning. Teachers and outside vendors offer enrichment programs after school. There are currently enrichment in Youth Development, Recreation, Career/Life After High School, and Community Service. Some examples of enrichment programs are, Digital Media Arts, Cake Decorating and Chocolate Making, Airbrush, Cultural Arts, Hip Hop Dance,  Jewelry Design, Resume Writing Workshops, Job and Career Readiness, etc.

Leadership Programs

Jordan WRAP Leadership Council: This leadership program meets every Friday afterschool. This group of students is responsible for helping to manage the grant, "Grant Managers". They put on events to help recruit students into the program, serve as representatives of the student body to choose youth programs to provide afterschool, fundraise as needed for programs who might need support or supplies, put on a youth leadership conference each year, service projects for our school and our community, maintain the WRAP Panther Lounge on campus.

Xi Sisters and Omega Brothers Leadership Programs: The Xi Sister and Omega Brothers programs are modeled after a Fraternity/Sorority, and serve as a Service Learning Component for the WRAP after school program.

The Xi Sisters was founded by a student Annette Robertson in 2007, whose vision was to create a sisterhood modeled after a sorority where students would support one another through school and family crisis, complete service learning and community service projects, and stay College bound participating in college tours and workshops, as well as fun and exciting field trips. The Xi Sisters program found support from our very own principal Rosalind Morgan who brought in her alumni Sorority Alpha Kappa Alpha who currently mentors out students.

 The Omega Brothers was founded by a student Rudy Fifita who saw the work of the girls and wanted a program for the guys. He created a brotherhood which served alongside the Xi Sisters Program.
