Days Open

Every year, we welcome nearly 13,000 youth between the ages of 6 and 18 to our Clubs and School-Based sites. As soon as our youth members walk through our doors, they enter an environment of stability, consistency, and physical and emotional safety. All of our Club run programs designed to be fun and engaging, while building skills and confidence for a successful future.

We’re open when kids need us most - after school, on most school holidays, and all day during the summer. Clubs offer safe places where young people can learn, grow, and succeed.
