The Upper Room has been providing after-school enrichment for nearly twenty years. We tailor our after-school programs based on the needs of each individual partnered school.

The After-School Program is made up of a few components, including:

  • All students involved in the after-school program receive a hot meal for free.
  • Youth counselors and volunteer tutors will provide one-on-one homework help to students as needed.
  • Enrichment Activities. Courses from organizations and individuals teaching students subjects as
    • Art
    • Music with the Eddie Baker School of Music
    • Scouting
    • Dance
    • Sports
  • The program also provides enrichment classes in visual and performing arts, sports, and scouting activities.


All After-School programs run until 6 pm and begin with a meal. The first hour is reserved for homework help and is followed by enrichment activities that vary by each program.
