On Saturday, May 14 five After School Matters all-male programs gathered at Church on the Block in Austin to showcase their talents for each other, share why their program matters to them, and interact with programs from different high schools and neighborhoods across the city. The event aimed to engage more teen males in after-school programs by highlighting the great work of current programs and the positive influence these teens have on their communities. The ‘You Got Served’ program (Austin) fed the crowd while Beats & Bars (Little Village), Beyond Rhythm & Rhyme (West Garfield Park), and Omni Jazz & Tech (Grand Boulevard) performed for all.
