The Youth Services program provides wholesome, supervised enrichment, fitness and sport activities in a safe neighborhood environment. The program emphasizes physical fitness that develops basic movement skills, strong and healthy bodies, teamwork, sportsmanship, cooperative social skills and activities that reinforce the lessons learned in the regular instructional program. In addition, the tenets and teaching model of the national “CHARACTER COUNTS!” program is implemented to instill and reinforce the back-to-basics effort to build good character in our youth.
Trained supervisors plan and conduct the program each day after school for children at nearly all Los Angeles Unified School District elementary schools. This program is provided free-of-charge to participants. The program operates from the time of school dismissal until the posted closing time to better meet the recreational and supervision needs of children, as well as those of working parents.
Youth Services program is a permissive program where participants arrive and leave at their own discretion. The elementary school playground program is for Second through Fifth Grade students. Transitional Kindergarten (TK) through First Grade students are not permitted to participate in the program.
