- The Benefits of SKIESUnlimited
There is no question that military-connected children and youth face special challenges, and Army CYS Services believes the youth development benefits that can be derived from participating in SKIESUnlimited are significant. Instructional programs touch every aspect of child and youth development: physical, cognitive, emotional and social.
A student's age and developmental stage must be properly assessed in order to make best use of an instructional program. The latest research shows that young people spend as much as 80 percent of their waking time outside of the classroom. Students involved in after-school instructional programs have been shown to have developed an intellectual and emotional level that will be beneficial well into adulthood. When involved in instructional programs during the critical hours of 3-8 p.m., they are less likely to engage in undesirable behavior.
Children and youth are able to participate in our instructional programs for multiple purposes: to explore new skills, to pursue and nurture personal interests, to interact socially with others, to build a resume, to bolster a college application, or even to foster a close relationship with caring , knowledgeable adults outside of the home. Instructional programs foster the development of critical life, leadership, and social skills.
