Moving Ahead Afterschool & Summer Program

What we do:

The Moving Ahead Program provides free after-school and summer care for children from low income households. Hot meals. Tutoring. Mentors to help with homework. It’s fun. It’s safe. It’s positive. It’s a great place to explore science, math, and more.

Why we’re great:

The Moving Ahead Program is also a hub where families can access services, get help with basic needs, or access mental and behavioral health support. It connects parents to schools and individual classroom teachers. It supports families to build kids.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

High-quality childcare is one of the biggest costs for families today. It is also one of the biggest predictors of school success. Moving Ahead made a commitment to provide free care so that all children have the same chance regardless of income.
