JCA After School and Study Central Programs
Within the Youth Services department at the JCA, we see ourselves as facilitators of each child’s development. It is our mission to provide a safe, structured and nurturing environment that encourages responsible behavior, respect for others and a positive outlook. We seek to develop a positive after school experience for your child so that they can better their future. Even when children are not in school, it is important to continue developing social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills, and promote character building.
Our after school programs are here to help your child grow mentally and physically with a well rounded curriculum that includes homework help and tutoring as well as sports options, art, volunteer opportunities and other enrichment experiences. For parents in Jacksonville, Fl, the JCA after school program offers you peace of mind that your child is getting the best possible care and having fun at the same time! Our dedication to quality programming and skilled JCA staff ensures that our after school program provides your child with great teachers and activities. We want to make sure each child receives the care and attention they need from their after school program. That’s why we take great strides to ensure our staff and counselors are trained with the latest educational techniques and methods to be able to best help your child.
