A core program at Youth One, the after school drop in exists to give youth a safe, fun, empowering and mentoring environment during after school hours.

Program features optional/organized activities, computer lab, art room, mini ramp (skateboarding), climbing wall, table games, concession, daily meal/snack and more.

What a typical drop-in looks like:

  • Volunteers come in for a team meeting 15 minutes before the program starts.
  • Roles within the day are handed out, and any items/announcements for the day are communicated.
  • Doors open for youth at 3pm, here they sign in through our check-in system, or any new youth are registered.
  • 30 minutes after opening, we have a “family meeting” where we go over the 3 golden rules, and let youth know about the planned activities and snacks.
  • After the family meeting, a snack/meal is served, planned activities take place and free time follows.
  • At the end of Drop-In, all volunteers are expected to stay at least 30 minutes to clean and have a debrief meeting.
