Knowledge is a ticket out of poverty.
The Salvation Army operates hundreds of after school programs in low and moderate income neighborhoods across the country.
By the end of 4th grade, low-income students are already two years behind grade level.
By the time they reach the 12th grade, the same kids are four years behind.
Our first priority is to meet basic human needs, but we recognize the importance of programs that go beyond the basics of food, shelter, clothing and safety. In addition to meeting basic needs, The Salvation Army strives to provide programs that will help children thrive during crucial developmental years - from after school programs and summer camps, to childcare and toys at Christmas.
Homework Assistance and Counseling
At The Salvation Army, we provide one-on-one teaching assistance to help kids of all ages with school work, study guidance and literacy advancement. We open our doors to anyone in need and never discriminate based on gender, ethnicity or socioeconomic level.
Sports, Clubs and Extracurricular Activities
Through a variety of no-fee and low cost after-school programs, we provide safe ways for kids to make friends and participate in activities they couldn't otherwise afford.
Dance, Art and Music Programs
