We also serve as a Community Center.

The Pre-teen Leadership Program provides a wide range of afterschool programming for youth in grades 4 - 5 that is enhanced through partnerships with several local organizations.

Our Middle School Program, for youth in grades 6 - 8, builds on experiences in the pre-teen program by providing developmentally appropriate experiences in an afterschool setting.
