Knowledge is a ticket out of poverty.

The Salvation Army operates hundreds of after school programs in low and moderate income neighborhoods.

 

The lives of 2,000 Youth in our community are changed by The Salvation Army's Youth Programs each Year

Red Shield After School Program
This is a supervised, safe, affordable and licensed tutoring and character building program for up to 44 school-age children. Transportation is provided from many D11 schools to The Salvation Army where children receive a snack; then with the assistance and supervision of our qualified staff and trained volunteers, students complete homework and engage in meaningful recreational activities reinforcing social, developmental and life skills. Once a week, children may stay late for character and spiritual building programs.

The after school program is designed to reduce behavioral problems and bring at risk youth to grade level standards. Last year, more than 40% of the 156 areas graded for these students were below grade level when entering the program. By the end of the year, more than 75% of the youth were meeting grade level requirements. 

There are no income requirements for this program. Colorado Child Care Assistance Program (CCCAP) is accepted and financial aide is available for qualifying families.
