Teens in the Lifeguard program at Wells High School learn tips from their instructor.
Our program providers deliver After School Matters programs in the summer, fall and/or spring program sessions. These dedicated providers – professionals in their fields who serve as mentors to our teens – deliver programs independently either as After School Matters Employee Instructors or as Community-Based Organizations. They support our teens’ success from the beginning to the end of a program, and often beyond.
