Afterschool

Our After School Partner 

Good Shepherd after school provides a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment during the critical hours when school is out and parents/caregivers are working.

Who We Serve

Good Shepherd Services leads free after-school programming at Launch. More than 50% of Launch students participate in our free program that they love!

The programs are designed to reinforce lessons learned during school time in new and creative ways, while at the same time providing opportunities for young people to expand their horizons by learning new skills and nurturing special talents and interests.
