We expect to serve up to 200 Club members throughout the year with after school programming, summer programs, and athletics leagues for students from community elementary and junior high schools within District 15. For three hours every day, our members receive homework help, tutoring, snacks and dinner, and participate in enrichment programs. These programs are in the core areas of education and career development, character and leadership, health and life skills, STEM, sports, and fitness, all provided in a fun and enriching environment in which the children thrive.
