We as parents want our children to have the opportunity to explore their personal interests, experience their community, build relationships with peers and potential employers, learn job skills, live self-determined lives and gain confidence and a sense of belonging in our community.


After school students will: volunteer in the community, meet and tour local businesses and use their own strengths and gifts to guide the course of the program.
