Programs may serve children from any age group and from any community in our service area.
The term “after school programs” covers a wide range of youth development programs that are conducted outside of the school hours, in the afternoon, evening, on weekends or holidays. The site may be a school building, or any community based facility.
The Foundation will fund after school programs that incorporate the best-practice elements of high quality after school programs, including:
- Youth development activities that are fun and safe.
- Academic support and enrichment.
- Homework help and tutoring.
- Recreation activities.
- A focus on outreach to enroll under served youth populations; and keeping youth involved and engaged on a regular basis.
