What is SKIESUnlimited

The name SKIESUnlimited combines the acronym for “Schools of Knowledge, Inspiration, Exploration, and Skills” with the word Unlimited for the unlimited learning possibilities this exciting new initiative offers Army children and youth.

  • SKIESUnlimited provides the framework or umbrella for all instructional programming in the CYS System worldwide.
  • SKIESUnlimited encompasses instructional programs for children and youth from infancy to adolescence i.e., four weeks through the end of their senior year in high school.
  • Through SKIESUnlimited, children and youth in CDS, SAS, MS&T Programs have equal access to opportunities that expand their knowledge, inspire them, allow them to explore, and acquire new skills.

Youth people spend as much as 80% of their waking time outside the classroom.  When involved in instructional programs during the critical hours of 3-8 PM, they are less likely to engage in undesirable behavior.  Children and youth participate in instructional programs for a variety of reasons:  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 to foster a close relationship with caring, knowledgeable adults outside of the home.

 

What SKIESUnlimited Offers

Instructional programs foster the development of critical life, leadership, and social skills.  The latest educational research confirms that a student’s involvement in after-school instructional programs is beneficial on all levels.  Instructional programs have been shown to promote the intellectual development of children and youth.

We are here to offer the community what they want so feel free to call 301-677-1196 and state your requests.
