Challenger After-School Program 2016-2017​

We are very excited about what we have to offer our middle schoolers this school year.  Your youth will face many new experiences and challenges and we want to be there to mentor and love them through this influential time.  If you haven't thought about enrolling your youth in the Challenger After School Program before, now's the time!  There are so many temptations and negative influences surrounding youth both in and outside of school.  The Challenger Program provides a positive environment for your youth to learn, grow and develop​ a sense of community.
