Despite our statewide scale, we engage communities at the local level through Leadership Councils focused on building grassroots support through volunteerism, philanthropy and in-kind services. As an organization, we have established ourselves as a reliable partner and advocate for youth in every community we serve.

Our broad base of operation, which now spans from San Diego to Sacramento, continues to grow as school districts recognize that effective afterschool programs can be a powerful asset in our collective efforts to close the state’s persistent achievement gap. Extended learning time provides an ideal venue for the development of 21st Century skills through project-based learning, group work and reciprocal teaching, and our sizable infrastructure offers an impressive platform that can be leveraged to launch a wide variety of educational initiatives.
