Students are provided with a daily snack and social time with friends. Staff are trained to lead with social emotional learning and provide restorative practices. The Program Manager works closely with the school day Social Worker to help provide extra support and counseling services.
"There is no other after school program that compares to The Richmond Neighborhood Center’s program. It is affordable, organized, structured, and provides educational support and extracurricular exposure to the arts. There is genuine care at this program - the people really care! As a parent and teacher I see the great value and benefits of your program." - The Richmond Neighborhood Center parent
