About Us

The hours between school dismissal and the dinner hour are some of the most dangerous hours of the day for school-age children. Our afterschool programs seek to provide a safe, secure environment in which children can be involved in wholesome, enriching activities while their parents are still working. It is our desire to provide connections between school and home for our students with meaningful interactions and planned activities while parents are away. Our 94 program sites seek to deliver high quality out of school time experiences for our 19,000+ enrolled students.
