After-School Central, (also known as "ASC) is designed to partner with parents by providing a FREE, safe and supervised after-school education, enrichment, and recreation program for middle school students in Columbia City. Our 1 staff works in conjunction with a team of adult community volunteers to provide a balance of recreation, education, and enrichment through the daily structure of activities. Free snacks are provided daily to students, as well as an hour of free (recreational) time in the gym, game room, and computer lab. Education and enrichment happens during "Options" and "Homework Time," two 30-minute blocks of time for various opportunities, including homework help or creativity classes. Creativity classes vary from week to week, but include art classes, service projects, guitar lessons, fitness training, small group discussions and a variety of other activities.

After-School Central Mentors work with ASC Staff to supervise and facilitate after-school activities, but primarily focus on interacting with and pursuing healthy relationships with attending students. ASC Mentors provide positive relationships, encouragement, and healthy role modeling to students.

We are looking for adults who will volunteer 1 afternoon weekly from 3:45-6pm (Tues., Wed, or Thurs during the school year).
