Youth Development

Our Youth Development Program's mission is to amplify the visions of young community leaders by providing beyond-school programming that nurtures youth culture and partnerships with families, schools, and BIPOC members of the community.


Our vision is for young community leaders to develop their passions & find their own way to share the narrative of their community through representative leadership.


We value youth leadership, access, our community, and cultural representation.

YDP Programs

After School Youth Program

School Level: Kindergarten - Grade 12

 

We offer our youth programs for free! This includes any food and materials we provide during the program as well. When your child participates in our After School programs, they will have also access to participate in Innovation Learning Center classes for free.

 

Our programs are catered to your child's age group using Filipino words:

Batibot refers to young children and is perfect for K-Grade 6 students. It also means 'enduring' and 'strong' which are qualities we hope to instill into the future generations.

Bagets refers to teenagers and applies to those in Grades 7-12. It is the opposite of "forgets" because teenagers are still young and are great at making memories. 

September 11, 2023 - June 21, 2024

Monday - Friday

  • Batibot from 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM​

  • Bagets from 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
