As the cost of living increases, larger portions of family budgets are being diverted away from children’s after-school activities to necessities such as rent and food.

Extracurricular programs help youth transition into adulthood and realize their full potential. By being active and socializing, children develop life skills and improve their overall mental and physical well-being.

The Salvation Army believes that every child deserves equal opportunity to succeed. In many of our programs across the country, we provide children of all ages and economic background with a safe place to play, learn and grow. With services such as summer camps, feeding programs and youth community programs, children develop skills necessary to overcome interpersonal and societal challenges.
