Presently, we have three locations where we will provide after school programming to children 5-12 years. Our goal is ensure participants have quality supervised after school hours mentorship. We strive to enable children to develop prosocial, self-confidence, leadership, critical and creative-thinking skills. Our approach is to listen to our young people to ensure they can share in making decisions on what it is they want and need.
