Our after-school programs are free and provide educational, preventative, and unique enrichment programming Monday – Friday when school is in session for up to 3 hours after school. The programs are open to students attending the school site where the program is located.

Our goal is to provide parents/guardians with a safe place to send their children after school. Students take part in classes that help increase self-esteem and build leadership skills. Students also participate in monthly service learning activities in the community.

The After School Programs can include the following types of activities:

  • Homework time and tutoring
  • Recreation - sports, interactive games, team building, physical skill building
  • Alcohol and Drug Prevention
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Leadership and Resiliency Skill Building
  • Clubs such as: dance, drama, music, art, science, etc.

All school-based programs are FREE to students and families.
