Julia C. Hester House: 2021 – 2022 Virtual After-School Enrichment Youth Program

Due to Covid-19 precautions and prevention methods, the Julia C. Hester House after school enrichment program this year will be conducted virtually.

Each weekday, from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m., our content experts and youth specialist teams conduct online sessions for participating children. The program is designed to complement formal academic development, introduce cultural arts and interests and provide fun, social interactions for students who may otherwise have limited access to education, cultural development and peers.

The program is held after school, beginning August 23rd 2021 and ending on June 7th 2022. Due to some spots remaining opening, we are accepting a limited number of additional interested students and families through September 3rd.
