The Salvation Army operates hundreds of after school programs in low and moderate income neighborhoods across the country.
Fifty-seven percent of children between 6 and 17 years old participate in at least one after-school extracurricular activity.
Children were more likely to participate in sports (35%) than clubs or lessons like music, dance and language.
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.
Chopped Jr: Cooking Classes for Kids
Our progam provides a safe space to learn and grow in the kitchen. Participants will learn kitchen safety, cooking techniques, healthy eating, and shopping. This program is seasonal for the Fall, Winter, and Spring.
