Scholarships are available, but are limited depending on the time of year. We will not turn youth away for their inabil-ity to pay and will work with each family as necessary.
Power Hour Program
We require all youth grades K-6 to go directly to the Education Center upon entering from school to do their nightly homework assignments. If they don’t have any homework they are required to read for 30 min. and we have a wide selection of books. After each youth has finished their homework and it has been checked by staff and/or tutors, they receive a stamp on the back of their hand which indicates that they have finished and can progress to other programming activities around the Club.
BE READY & BE GREAT Graduate
These programs are for middle and high school students. We provide 1:1 mentoring to those enrolled, assisting them on getting their homework finished on time, tracking grades for each of their classes, addressing school absences, and assisting with college applications, etc.
Dinner is served each day from 5:00pm-5:30pm for our members. This is a complimentary piece of our program, we want to make sure all of our kids are healthy and their tummies are full. Our menu is USDA approved.
Daily Coordinated Activities
We have age-appropriate activities happening in each of our rooms around the clock until we close….we have a full running gamesroom, computer lab, gymnasium, music studio and teen center…plenty of awesome activities to keep all of our youth busy and engaged.
