Youth Services offers a Before & After School Program for middle school age youth. Transportation is provided to and from both middle schools on the installation. The program is staffed with well trained and caring youth professionals serving the after school needs of the youth of our community.

The services provided include a safe and supervised setting with freedom for a variety of activity choices. Homework Assistance is available in the combined space of the homework center and computer lab. Educational and recreational software are available for exploration in the computer lab, as well as structured computer and program skill classes.

Boys and Girls Club and 4H clubs, projects, activities and curriculums are used as the sound foundation of our youth development program. Activities such as photography, digital arts, drama, cooking, individual and team sport fun, fitness and nutrition are a few of the many diverse offerings during the course of the school year long program.

Breakfast, lunch and after school snacks are provided to all participating youth using USDA guidelines.

Services are also available on “school closure days” such as election days, teacher conferences, teacher training and other fall, winter or spring holidays for no additional charge for all enrolled in the program.
