High School After-School Programs

BRIDGE Volunteering, 9th – 12th Grade

Hours: Shifts are Monday through Friday from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. with at least two shifts required per week

KYCC’s BRIDGE volunteer program, located at our Wilton site, aims to close the gaps in academic, social, and emotional growth in our elementary and middle school students by recruiting, training, and placing high school volunteers who will work directly with our students in our elementary and middle school after-school programs. Volunteers will be provided with regular training and workshops that will prepare and strengthen their skills as tutors and mentors to be the “bridge” for our younger students. The experiences our volunteers will acquire through BRIDGE will also enable and empower them to develop their leadership and life skills by pushing them to look beyond their own needs.  For more information, on volunteering please contact us here.

STOKED Mentoring, 6th – 12th Grade

Hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. with weekend field trips

STOKED Mentoring is an action-sports program hosted at our Menlo Family Center. STOKED believes that riding a wave, building a skateboard and gliding down snowy mountains can show teens that they are capable of greatness, despite the odds against them. Activities include homework help, community service events, skateboard building workshops and weekend field trips to skate parks, the beach and the mountains with trained mentors.
