Need a safe place for your child to hang out after school? Nineteen local community centers have a solution: the After-School Program.

Fort Worth’s quality after-school activities are community-driven, expanded learning opportunities that support cognitive, social, physical and emotional outcomes. These programs offer a balanced curriculum of academic support, cultural enrichment and recreation.

The program is available for students age 5-13. Sessions run Monday-Friday, from school dismissal to 6 p.m. Transportation is available at select sites. Supper and a snack are served each day.

Price varies by location, and some scholarships are available. A community center membership is required. Registration is required and can be paid by credit card or electronic check.

Safety protocols in place

After-school locations follow safety protocols that include temperature checks, health screenings, mask requirements, physical distancing, increased sanitation and disinfection, and reduced staff-to-participant ratios.

Staff members have been providing programming at community centers since early summer. Staff members are trained and focused on children’s well-being and protection at all times.

To learn more, contact a local community center.
