After School Programs
The McKim Center provides a free, safe, and structured after-school program for the children of Jonestown. The after-school program, which serves children from pre-K through fifth grade, runs from September through June and is monitored by professional staff, well-trained volunteers, high school and college-aged young people. Offerings include:
HOMEWORK HELP: With emphasis on support for developing math and reading skills.
EDUCATIONAL ENRICHMENT: Is offered in the arts, dance, music, and film. In addition, thanks to our partnership with Woodberry Crossing Farm, McKim kids can connect to the natural world through field trips to the farm, interaction with its animals, and other learning activities.
EMERGING PROGRAMS: In Theatre and in Health & Wellness are currently being developed with our partnering organizations.
