The Kennedy House After School Program offers vulnerable children between the ages of 4-13 with a variety of recreational and play-based after school programming that incorporates important life skills training, physical activity as well as homework help and a healthy snack time.
The program operates in high-risk, multicultural neighbourhoods in Scarborough, Ontario. These communities have been identified as areas in need of programming that will bring children together and give them new opportunities for recreation and academic support.
What is special about this program is that instead of requiring that the children come to our space, we go to where the children are, thus making it most convenient and safe for them. We also offer the program for free, giving parents in low-income neighbourhoods, a new option for after school care for their children.
The current locations include:
The East Scarborough Storefront – offered to 30 children at Lawrence Ave and Orton Park on Monday and Thursdays from 4:00-6:00.
Gilder Court – offered to 25 children in the Midland and Eglinton area on Wednesdays from 4:00-6:00.
Lynngate Junior Public School – offered to 20 children at Sheppard and Birchmount Road in Agincourt on Tuesdays from 3:30-5:30.
