WBRC Fox 6 News stopped by The J recently to check out our new J After School program for grades 3-7 that’s free for members. The J will host an informational open house for families (free pizza!) on Monday, August 21, in a completely refreshed Youth Lounge. The program will start welcoming kids the next day (Tuesday, August 22) at 3:30 p.m.
Scholarships are available to help cover the cost of a membership.
“We really want this to be a place where kids can come in, feel proud, and feel ownership for it,” says Program Director Elizabeth Patton.
The long history of youth-enrichment programs at The J means that J After School participants will benefit from supervised and structured educational activities and homework help in addition to a variety of board games and puzzles, a pool table, and Nintendo Switch.
Reach out to Elizabeth with questions about the program, or if you have furniture or board games in good condition that you would like to donate.
