Key components of our after-school program include tutoring in math and language arts, art enrichment, hands-on science and technology projects, structured fitness activities, computer skills training, nutrition education, sex education, vocational and life skills classes.
Kids Club is designed for youth ages 7 to 12 (2nd to 5th grade), while Teen Club is designed for youth ages 13 to 18 (6th to 12th grade) and has a college and career readiness focus.
Kids Club meets on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm at Brownwood Recreation Center. Teen Club meets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Once or twice a month, the youth in both programs go on field trips to recreational, educational and cultural venues, usually on Saturdays.
I’ll never forget the first little boy I met. He had a book about dogs and I had two dogs at home, so we immediately connected. He seemed so happy to have somebody paying attention to him. That boy is a teenager now and he’s growing into a funny, caring and responsible adult, just like so many of the other kids I’ve met at Kids Club. I’m really proud to have them as my friends.
