The Arc After School Program
Our After School Program runs during the school year on Tuesday from 2-5, Wednesday 1-4, and Thursday 2-5. The bus delivers the participants from the ORHS to our program. During breaks, we offer a two day per week 9-1 schedule like our summer program.
We provide snacks, crafts, games, jobs with rewards and fundraising for our program.
The Arc Anderson County After School and Summer Program is a safe environment for a population that can sometimes be marginalized. Through soft skills development, they are learning to be part of a group, to give and take, to take on leadership responsibilities, form lasting friendships and explore relationships. In a nutshell, they are gaining knowledge and skills, but more importantly, confidence to navigate this thing called life.
