Here4Youth After-School & Summer Program
The Here4Youth After-School & Summer Program specializes in quality after-school care for children with disabilities. Here4Youth is all about what children and youth CAN DO, not what they can’t do. We work with children and family members to provide education, support and fun.
How it Works
A number of local public schools provide transportation between the school and Here4Youth in the afternoon.
The job of a loving caregiver can be challenging. Here4Youth provides respite care for families one night every other month (if there is enough demand for the service). With affordable rates and a convenient location, Here4Youth offers support - and a great experience for your family. We understand that caring for a loved one is a 24-hour job and we’re here to help give you time for the things you must do for yourself.
What Students and Families Can Expect from Here4Youth
Here4Youth has a 1:5 staff to student ratio. That means students receive the attention they need. LSS is able to meet the needs of students ages 3 to 21 who may not be successful in other settings. With our ratio, we are positioned to focus on children with a wide range of developmental disabilities. It’s all about caring, learning and enrichment.
Here4Youth features a large recreational room, an outdoor play area, a dramatic play room, a library and an activity gym. All activities are aimed at helping children relieve stress, focus and better interact with others. Our weekly routines teach educational subjects, arts and crafts, and student independence in an approachable manner for differing levels of development. Staff partner with parents and guardians in addressing behaviors of concern while encouraging the growth of social skills and choice making.
We choose all of our supplies and equipment with an emphasis on learning. Children have access to trained and passionate staff and limitless opportunities for positive relationship building.
