Youth Development Services After School Program
Vision: Calumet City’s Youth Development Service program creates happy, engaged, future-ready learners.
Mission: Calumet City’s Youth Development Service program provides a high-quality out-of-school time program that engages students in exploration of academic content in interesting and innovative ways.
Attendance Policy: This learning program is provided free of charge to participants (and their families) within qualifying neighborhoods. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis, while also reserving space for participants who are identified as most in need of support. This is possible because the program is funded through the Reimagine Public Safety Act Youth Development Services grant, administered by the Illinois Department of Human Services and provided through the Calumet City Public LIbrary site. Attendance is a very important part of our program. To get the most out of the program, your child should attend daily for the full program session.
