Welcome to the website for The Afterschool Programs of Lancaster. Our mission is to provide programs and services that enrich the educational, social, and cultural opportunities of students and families in our communities.
We are happy to announce we received 2 new 21st Century Grants. These grants will service Tallmadge Elementary and Sherman and Ewing Junior High Schools for the next 3 years.
The Afterschool Programs will be hosting a corn hole fundraiser on October 15th. This event will be held at the shelter house at the Moose Lodge (1201 Sugar Grove Rd.) There will be food and beverages for sale and great prizes to raffle off too!
We want to thank all our Homework Club Sponsors!! These sponsors have allowed us to increase the number of at-risk students we service due to their fiscal donations to the Afterschool Programs of Lancaster.
