Included is an after-school program, special events on days when school closes early or is not open, and summer camps and activities.
Academic, cultural and linguistic enrichment opportunities are offered after school to D/HH elementary-aged youth, their siblings, and children who have D/HH parents during the school year. Field trips are held once a month.
