Youth After School Program

The Youth After School Program involves youth in a variety of activities Monday through Friday at the Wellspring Center.  Those activities include homework help, arts and crafts, ethnic and science nights and other educational and recreational programs.  We also stress intergenerational interaction with participants in our Older Adult Program.

Each Monday we take our program model “on the road” to Study Elementary from 3:00-6:00pm.

In 2016, Wellspring provided programming for 188 youth participants. There is currently a wait list for this program. Contact Lois Ehinger, Director, Youth Services for more information.

There are no fees for the Youth After School Program.
