Conyers City Councilwoman Alsobrook announces free Summer Enrichment Program for families packed with activities


CONYERS—Families in Rockdale County are invited to register for a free summer enrichment program hosted by Conyers City Councilwoman Connie Alsobrook in collaboration with Beyond the Bell.

The eight-week program, open to youths ages 17 and under and their parents or guardians, will be held June 7 through July 31, ending with a Back-to-School extravaganza.

“After more than a year of our youths being under one restriction or another due to Covid, I wanted to give them an opportunity to get out of the house this summer and have some fun and perhaps enjoy some life-altering experiences,” Alsobrook said. “I have been working with numerous individuals to present wonderful learning opportunities to the youth and their families.”

An array of activities are planned including Reading in the Park with local authors and community leaders; classes in healthy cooking, photography, etiquette, life skills; Popup Popsicle Days; as well as physical fitness, and a basketball program and tournament.

Alsobrook said she is excited about participating in the reading program for babies and children. That program will be held in July at Bill Spivey Park, and moms, dads and caregivers may join her there for reading and a picnic.

“I’m looking forward to reading to the children. It will be great to get outdoors,” said Alsobrook.

The schedule also includes some unique learning opportunities such as Car Care 101 with DSW Auto, Politics 101, financial literacy, Mock Stop classes with the Conyers Police Department; and Canvas and Conversation art classes. Additionally, Pastor Corey Hambrick of Life Church Christian Center in Conyers will host a series of evening ZOOM conversations entitled “God, are you listening?” for families.

The summer enrichment program kicks off with exercise classes on June 7, 9, 10, 11. The classes, open to families, will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Lett Center, 1002 Hardin St., Conyers.
