Walt’s Place is home to our ever-growing After School Program. Children from the community come to Walt’s Place directly from school to participate in various projects and activities.
Walt’s Place is open during the school year from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. All school-age kids are welcome. Our after school program allows parents to keep working or go to school.
Daily: snack provided, homework help with tutors, and social recreation time.
Some of the things we have:
Many, many table games
A computer lab
Many more outdoor games
All recieve adult mentorship from trained staff and volunteers. We are staffed with work-study students from VU and many great volunteers from the community. (Everyone has their background checked.) With many adults and high school students, children have the opportunity to get more one-on-one help with homework. It also allows us to have more areas of our building open each day. (members allowed only in supervised areas)
Hilltop Too – Walt’s Place also offers Summer Program and Summer Food Program from June – August.
