Our after school program gives students opportunities to learn life skills, get homework assistance, explore interests and have a safe place to go where they can be productive. 

Transport/Check-in: Staff provides transportation for all youth to and from our agency.


Recreation/Physical Activity: We utilize this time to connect our youth with resources within their community through volunteer work community events or community activities.


Dinner: Youth are provided with a meal. 


Life Skills: Staff work with youth on skills including anger management, emotional regulation, creating boundaries, executive functioning, daily living skills, stress tolerance, and interpersonal skills. Focus is on one skill per week.


Wrap-up/Transport: Staff reviews behavioral goals and expectations children should meet in the community and at home.

summer program

Our summer program provides children and adolescents with social emotional learning, structure, life skills, and self-esteem development. 

Youth are involved in daily community-based activities designed to enhance social and self-awareness while increasing daily living skills and correcting errors in thinking. The goal is to decrease problematic behaviors and increase appropriate emotional and behavioral responses. 

A Fundamental plan focuses on meeting two specific goals for the summer. One goal is for social awareness, and the other is for emotional awareness. The goals are determined by the Fundamentals team with input from the youth, family, county workers, and other supporting programs (if applicable).

The Summer Program runs Monday-Friday from 9am-3pm. We provide transportation to and from the program. We hold activities in two-hour blocks with a 30-minute lunch break. The days are divided into life skills and community-based activities.
