4-H Youth Development

After School

After School Programs (school-age care) involves youth outside of school hours usually in a school or other community center.  It is supported by Extension through training the after-school staff, infusing curricula into the program and/or other significant support, such as conducting needs assessments, evaulations, and/or resource development. 

The primary purpose of this program is to provide care, developmental and educational experiences for youth while parents are working or unavailable.
