The goals of the DFCS Afterschool Care Program are to:

  • Provide opportunities for youth to establish positive relationships with their peers and caring adults during traditional non-school day hours; and
  • Provide technical assistance to organizations and agencies as they implement services and activities that support their youth’s overall well-being as they prepare for and transition into young adulthood.
