After School Challenge Program
The After School Challenge Program, previously implemented by the City Parks and Recreation Department, is now operated through the Department of Human Services (DHS).
Under contractual agreements, DHS established partnerships with eight school districts and four delegate agencies to continue the After School Challenge Program in 132 Elementary and Middle Schools.
The After School Challenge Program continues to provide activities, both educationally based and recreational, to youth at 132 school sites during the school year. Fees for the program are based on family income, family size and the number of children participating in the program.
An estimated 11,000 children will receive homework assistance, tutoring and other school - related aid, in addition to participating in various recreational activities. Program staff are recommended by each district to operate daily activities for youth. In addition, one teacher is hired to supervise these activities.
Students are asked to register for the program. All students at the particular school site are eligible to register. For further registration information, please contact your school site or agency providing the program.
