After-School and Full-Day Programs

This Program provides recreation, leisure, social, and developmental opportunities for youth in grades 6 through 12.  The Program offers out-of-school activities to include the Middle School and Teen (MST) After-School Program, open recreation, camps, and special events.  Youth must be registered through the CYS Services Parent Central Office.  The MST program is offered free of charge.  Youth can receive assistance with their homework, hone their computer skills in the Technology Lab, and participate in other exciting and educational opportunities provided in the Army’s Baseline Programming (mentioned above).  The MST Program also partners with a number of on-post organizations and provides field trips to places of interest.

The Rollin’ Thunder Skate Park offers youth the opportunity to participate in skate boarding and roller-skating in a safe environment.  The park has ramps and rails for youth who are beginning skaters, as well as equipment for more advanced skaters.  The Park is open (weather permitting) from Monday through Saturday and is supervised by Youth Services Staff.

Additional Programs for Youth

Youth ages 15 to 18 can sign up to participate in a Workforce-Preparation Apprenticeship Program (HIRED!), which provides the opportunity to work after school and on weekends in Family and MWR operations on the Garrison (e.g., food service and outdoor recreation).  Each of the four sessions per year is 12 weeks in duration.  For more information or registration dates for the Hired! Program, please contact Ms. Debbie Wambach, at 533-3205 or by email at Deborah.Wambach@us.army.mil.

 The Experience, Develop, Grow, and Excel (EDGE!) Program provides free classes for youth in a standardized framework, which includes the following four interest-area packages: Art EDGE!, Life EDGE!, Adventure EDGE!, and Fit EDGE!.  The Program has been designed in such a way as to build partnerships with other Family and MWR activities.  Classes are conducted during after-school hours from Monday through Friday in one-month increments.  The goal is to enhance and expand current CYS Services programming through a variety of EDGE! classes provided by Family and MWR partners.  For current class offerings, please contact Mr. Eddie Beck, Partnership Specialist, at 520-533-8437 or by email atEddie.Beck@us.army.mil.
