After School Program

Right off the school bus, our students walk into a safe and welcoming environment at Afterschool @ Seneca Street. Our K-8 grade and high school students arrive from 2:30-4:30. They come in to the CDC, grab a snack, and sit down to chat with our staff and volunteer mentors to process the long school day. During this time students can complete educational activity sheets to earn Seneca Street dollars, these dollars are saved by the students and used to buy their favorite items in our very own store each Monday.

Between 3:00 and 4:00 Students transition to homework time with encouragement from our volunteer tutors. High school students head upstairs to our Teen Program.

4:00-4:45: Once homework’s done, then it’s off to enrichment time! Whether it’s Girls On the Run, Boys On the Right Track, Videography, Architecture, Photography, Drawing, Computer Lab, Music Lessons, Crafts, or Cooking, enrichment time gives students in our program the opportunity to expand their horizons and learn healthy habits, taking part in activities they may not otherwise have access to.

4:45-5:15: Students  gather in the dining room for a free, healthy, take-home dinner, which is provided by Nine’s Food Service. 5:15-5:30 the children are free to play outdoors or in the gym as parents arrive for pick up time. 

Afterschool @ Seneca Street runs Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday from 3:00–5:30pm, September through June. All programs at the CDC are offered free of charge.
