After-school enrichment activities support academic achievement.*

*Programs are suspended during the global pandemic, but the list below is representative of what we offer.


Pathway Coaches make it a priority to connect students with existing programs in Charlottesville, encouraging involvement in sports, music, and school-sponsored clubs. City of Promise pays the fee for numerous partner activities, including  the Boys & Girls Club and camps hosted by Parks & Rec. Throughout the month, we collaborate with partners to offer educational "stations" for elementary students, plus tutoring, field trips, and leadership activities for older youth.
