*** Please note the program offerings listed above are subject to change based on availability of facilitates and facilitators

*** Some activities have a cap on how many students can participate in the activity. We will do our best to give your student their first choices but activities are on a first come first serve basis.

***The activity they choose for each day will be the activity they will remain in for the current term

Activities rotate depending on volunteer availability, season of the year, access to program materials, and interests of participants. Activities will be facilitated by Monica Mitchell; the After School Program Director. We depend on community volunteers as well as paid staff to help with coordination of activities, facilities, registration, maintaining program records, and supervising student volunteers.

Have an awesome talent or skill that you would like to share with local youth? Have ideas on programs youth are interested in? We would love to hear them! We are currently looking for programs to offer for the 2017-2018 school year!
