Many of the toughest challenges for students occur after the school bell rings. Whether they face hunger or academic obstacles, elementary and middle school students find a safe environment at our Afterschool Program. The free program allows students to complete their homework under teacher supervision and gives them the opportunity to connect with their classmates through sports, symphony, robotics and more.
Our Afterschool Program focuses on six core areas – academic enrichment, sports and recreation, life skills, cultural enrichment, parental involvement, and community service. After enjoying a nutritious snack and completing academics, students participate in enrichment activities such as cheerleading, dance, arts and crafts, and athletics – each led by highly qualified afterschool staff members.
All of our afterschool sites offer unique opportunities such as our robotics program in partnership with Shiva Robotics. This program allows students to practice hands-on STEM learning as they build and program robots to complete tasks as a team.
After students complete these activities, they gather together to enjoy a nutritious dinner and then are dismissed and picked up by parents or approved guardians. Oversight and primary funding of the afterschool programs is provided through the Kids Hope Alliance.
