Mission Statement

West County Community Services works to strengthen families in western Sonoma County. We provide opportunities, support and resources that touch the lives of youths, adults and seniors. By strengthening families we build stronger communities.

Description

As the lead agency of the Russian River After School Partnership, a collaboration of schools, businesses, government and service organizations, WCCS has been providing comprehensive after school and summer activities for the past four years to approximately 250 elementary and middle school youth. Currently serving two schools along the Russian River waterway we provide a wide range of enriching after school activities.

Staff at the identified schools has formed the After School T.E.A.M. (Teaching Enriching Activities Meaningfully)

The program's mission is to help youth become productive and positive citizens of the world. Kindergarten through eighth grade students from school sites located in Guerneville and Monte Rio participate. In these deserving communities, students are provided with homework help, tutoring, snack time and enriching activities after school. Art, music, photography, gardening, science, dance and gymnastics are examples of the activities led by enthusiastic and highly trained staff. Several field trips at each school site allow students to enjoy experiences they otherwise might not, including: roller-skating, ice-skating, rock climbing, bowling, bouncy house parties, visits to parks and other schools for pen pal picnics. We look forward to improving on our already successful programs next year.
