Afterschool Program

In our afterschool program, elementary-age students find opportunities for academic enrichment, leadership, character development, art, recreation, and community service.

Mentoring Program

Our mentoring program pairs high-school "Bigs" with elementary-school "Littles" in relationships that model sound leadership, promote academic success, and sustain a caring community.
