After School
After School and Saturday Drop-In – These programs are enrolled programs, NOT drop-in.

  • Academic Improvement with Minority Mentors (AIMM)
  • Learning Center and reading programs
  • Leadership Development
  • Fitness and Nutrition
  • Field trips to cultural, civic and sporting events
  • Community Service Projects
