VOICES After School Program Launches

For the 7th year, the federal 21st Century Community Learning Center grant has supported City High School’s VOICES extended day programs. This free programming is available before and after school every day of the week.

City High School staff and community partners teach academic, artistic, leadership, and wellness skills through a variety of regular tutoring opportunities, enrichment classes, school clubs, and periodic workshops. There is something for everyone. And there are free snacks available after school for all participants.

Student participation leads to new skills and new friends, and attendance in VOICES programs of 30 days or more can earn students off-campus lunch privileges. To join a program, students simply need to come to a class or workshop when they can, though attendance at the first meeting is strongly encouraged.
