Who We Are:

TEAM 21 is a collaborative after school and summer program serving over 1,800 students annually in the City of Wyoming. We are a partnership between the City of Wyoming Parks and Recreation Department, Wyoming Public Schools, Godfrey-Lee Public Schools, and Godwin Heights Public Schools.

What We Do:

We are working to improve the lives of youth and their families in our community. TEAM 21’s mission is to foster academic, social, and emotional growth among students through mentorship and activities, working together with the schools where programming takes place.

Activities:

TEAM 21 is a multi-faceted program that strives to provide enrichment and meet the dynamic needs of the students we serve. The program aims to expose our students to new experiences, broadening their horizons and allowing them to develop and cultivate new interests in many areas, including the following:

  • Academic Enrichment
  • Arts of All Kinds
  • Career Readiness
  • Community Service
  • Family and Community Events
  • Health and Wellness
  • Sports & Fitness 
  • STEM

Staff:

Our staff, who come from a variety of backgrounds and have varying interests, are united by a single mission: to make a positive impact on youth in our community, serving as mentors and caring, consistent adults ready to make a difference in the lives of our students.

To ensure that each student has a high-quality experience in the program, TEAM 21 works to maintain staffing levels of 1 staff member for every 12 students. Staff participate in many on-going professional development trainings, from classroom management techniques and large group management trainings to content area trainings. Our staff participate in a minimum of 16 hours of on-going training each year.

Additionally, TEAM 21 staff undergo a rigorous state and federal background check process prior to their employment.
