Dove Academy has adopted an after-school program, Snooky Cookie University, which is focused on teaching students the art of baking. The program, founded by Tasha White, provides students with hands-on learning experience in baking while integrating skills in budgeting, purchasing, shopping, and marketing. These are tools students will be able to use now as well as in the future. An integral part of the program is that students work together in groups where the goal is to learn how to work as part of a team, communicate effectively with each other, along with conflict management. This initiative is a part of “Let’s Go Deeper” which is geared toward building the whole-child experience for students in Detroit.
