Shared goal(s): Support youth during out-of-school time activities
For several years, the After School Program has been offered in multiple Y Branches in partnership with a local school district in the Greater New Orleans area. The program runs M-F, 3pm-6pm. As part of the partnership, the schools provide transportation for students to the Y locations from schools. The Y is in talks to expand the program to two more area school districts. During the pandemic, the program is starting to running into issues of social distancing and transportation.

How do you address inequity?
The program core focus is addressing inequity. It provides space, structure, and expertise to youth from families that do not have the resources to provide extra academic support. Ideally, this extra support means that the participating youth will remain academically engaged and successful.
