We share this mission, vision, and values:
Working together to increase the quality and sustainability of out of school time programs and services.
That every school-aged child in Georgetown County will have access to quality out-of-school time programs and services, promoting positive youth development and the prevention of at-risk behaviors.
COLLABORATION: We believe that success is heightened when one or more individuals, organizations or agencies participate and work on common goals.
QUALITY PROGRAMMING: We believe in quality programs that are centered around dignity, respect, positive learning environments, proper safety and supervision, and engaging experiences that promote positive youth development and the prevention of at-risk behaviors.
