The L.A.C.E.R. Afterschool Programs provide opportunities to nearly a thousand kids every day after school. Located in six public schools, students come to the LACER rooms, get a healthy snack and choose from a menu of free classes in the visual and performing arts, athletics and organized sports, as well as academic tutoring. Our programs expand the school’s curriculum, support the students and parents, and provide an opportunity that is not available in the day program, or in the surrounding community. Our students tell us that LACER helped them discover new things, they made friends, attended school more, and found the support they needed to graduate.
