Kennedy House Summer Program 2020 Update
After much consideration, we have decided not to run the Kennedy House Summer Program for 2020. This decision was made as an effort to keep doing our part to ensure that our communities stay safe. While we hope to resume our After School programs in September, we will continue to evaluate the situation as it progresses and we will update you all as soon as we can. As always, we wish everyone in the community the best wishes as we head into the summer months. We hope that you can enjoy this time together as much as you can and if possible, we hope to see you in the Fall!
Kennedy House After School Program
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 and physical activity as well as homework help and a healthy snack.
The program operates in high-risk, multicultural neighbourhoods in Scarborough. 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 25 children at Lawrence Ave and Orton Park on Monday and Thursdays from 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Lynngate Junior Public School – offered to 25 children at Sheppard and Birchmount Road in Agincourt on Tuesdays from 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Glamorgan – offered to 25 children in the Kennedy & 401 area on Wednesdays from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
To provide this program, we rely on the support of foundations, corporate funders & individual donations. To make a gift to support the After School Program, please click here.
