Youth Enrichment Programs
Friendship’s youth programs nurture youth ages 5-12 in our out-of-school-time learning environment and foster social and emotional growth to blossom. Our intentionally academic tutoring supports youth’s education while our character building mentors grows children’s maturity for life.
After School Program:
Friends enrolled in our After School Program during the academic year are transported from school to Friendship House, where students are greeted with a nutritious meal and drink. An on-site playground and gymnasium engages youth in physical recreation to encourage social and physical development. Friends receive homework help and tutoring assistance for school, and meet one-on-one and in groups for mentoring.
After School Program is Monday – Friday after school until 5:30 pm, with a site at Friendship House and a second site location within Orchard School. We pick up students from the following schools: Newman, Ponderosa, Washington, Broadwater, McKinley, Miles, Rose Park, Burlington, Riverside
Friends enrolled in our Summer Program receive all daycare with breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks served. Tutoring and mentoring are expanded to prevent the “summer slide” and provide youth a step up to the next grade level. Educational field trips to interesting local and state sites, sporting and recreational activities (i.e. golf, swimming, kickball, Olympic games, etc.), art projects, music lessons, vacation bible school are all included.
Summer Program is held at Friendship House and at a second site location within Orchard School. Summer Program is Monday – Friday 7:30 am to 6:00 pm.
