Description

Everyday after school teens, who are at risk of succumbing to street life and gang involvement, come to The Salvation Army's After-School Challenge program in Escondido. These teens, who are clients of the North Inland County Community Assessment Team (CAT), have the wonderful benefit of a homework and tutorial center, a computer center, and a variety of recreational activities. The program can accommodate up to 40 kids; however committed volunteers are needed to supervise and lead activities for the teens and support the growth of the program. Business leaders who can share a skill or activity with the children are also needed.
