 "We provide a safe space after school"

"They are given access to positive adult role models, constructive peer relationships and are encouraged to take on new challenges and develop valuable life skills. We empower young people to make good choices, manage their emotions and develop healthy relationships. We give children an opportunity to level out an uneven playing field, reaching their potential: on the field, in the classroom and in their personal lives."
