Summary The After School Program at Little Tokyo Service Center provides tutoring programs Monday-Thursday for youth residents (6-18 years of age) of our affordable housing apartments. These programs utilize volunteer tutors to help our children with homework, play games, and provide mentors/role models. Because of volunteers' efforts, we were able to provide 53 children with after school services, and include 75 youth in our mentorship program. Additionally, 80% of the youth enrolled in our after school programs saw their grades improve!
