After School

"Once a month we are getting some activity kits from the school for a week… because [my son] is staying at home (due to the pandemic)… we get the activity kits and they have …something for [my child] to do." - Parent

As the tour is drawing to a close, you learn there are a couple more people you get to meet. To explain the impact being made by after-school programming, which is organized by Boys and Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton & Area Out-of-School Time coordinator, you have the chance to hear from a father and son who use the program.

After School

Out-of-School programming contributes to students’ academic, social, emotional, and behavioural success. Youth who attend, experience increased self-confidence and self-esteem, have positive feelings about school and have healthy social behaviours which all contribute to greater academic success. Parents of students recognize such programming not only provides a safe place for their children to go after school, but also provides children with a variety of activities and helps them develop friendships.



School principal says

"Knowing that we have our All In For Youth staff, and they’re integrated so well into our teaching staff and our support staff, and it’s just a great blessing… the team that we have built here is ready to take on a number of pretty complex issues."
