Spotlight on: Wilcox SCOPE

Located: 2000 Hasting Rd. (south of Sangamon Avenue in Northgate neighborhood)

Staff: Ms. Myeisha (Lead), Ms. Chilyn, Mr. Dustin and Ms. Emily

Size: 15 in the morning, 30 in the afternoon 

Typical day at Wilcox: After school, students get help with homework and play outside on nice days. When the weather is bad, Wilcox SCOPERs like to play bingo, board games and build with Legos. 

Favorite activities: The girls enjoy arts and crafts and the boys enjoy building things. 

Quote from Ms. Myeisha: “I believe Wilcox SCOPE is unique because my staff and I got to know every student and gained supportive relationships with parents. Without these relationships I do not think the program would run smoothly.”

Financial aid

Project SCOPE works with Community Connection Point for families that need assistance with their weekly fee. For more information on Community Connection Point (CCP), please call 525-2805 or click on the blue link which will take you to their web site. The web site will allow you to print an application if you are applying for financial assistance for the first time.  If you currently have CCCC and are changing providers, you will need to call CCCC to request a Change of Provider form.  Once you complete your information, please deliver your CCCC form to the white dropbox located at the SCOPE office, 2120 E. Reservoir.   This dropbox is located outside of our entrance and is locked, so you may drop your paperwork off after hours.  Our staff will complete our portion of the form and forward it to CCP.  


Year End Statements:  Please be reminded that Project SCOPE does not provide a year end statement for tax purposes.  If needed, we can duplicate the receipts that you have received for a charge of .50 cents per receipt and we ask that you allow two weeks for them to be located and copied.
