Our Mission

The mission of St. Mark Youth Enrichment is to provide innovative programs and services that cultivate the educational and social-emotional growth of youth and families.

What We Do

St. Mark Youth Enrichment (formerly St. Mark Community Center) is a non-profit organization that has served the Dubuque Community for over 30 years. We provide after school programming in three Title 1 elementary schools in the Dubuque Community School District. As well as providing after school programs in Dyersville and Peosta

After School Programs:

The after school program,  encourage the holistic growth of each student through enrichment in the areas of academics, character development, health, physical exercise, and creativity.

Summer Heroes Camp

We provide an energetic 5 week summer program, St. Mark Heroes Camp. Located in both the Dubuque and Western Dubuque school districts. The 5 week program allows us to make a huge impact on the academic and social growth of the lives of our students. St Mark’s Heroes Camp gives children the opportunity to increase their reading and math scores, but to also experience learning in a hands on, enriching experience, including amazing field trips throughout the tri-states.

St. Mark also engages the student’s families in these learning processes to maximize the opportunities for academic and social-emotional growth at home, including breathing techniques and yoga, to help in teaching better self regulation in school and at home.
