About the program

After-school kids clubs are designed to focus on specific areas of learning. Youth leave the program with a set of new skills and knowledge, and with a desire to learn even more.

How do "clubs" work?

  • Clubs are four to six week sessions, once per week
  • Each session highlights a specific skill or aspect of the topic
  • Brock University student mentors facilitate clubs
