For more than a decade, our after school programs have kept children and young people safe during the after school hours when they are most at risk – and much more! Students are improving their academic performance, strengthening their interpersonal skills and experiencing opportunities that would otherwise be prohibitively expensive for their families. Our programs help combat summer learning loss, childhood in their communities. And, they reconnect neighborhoods with schools and help parents become better partners in their children’s education. Target Excellence currently operates after school programs on 14 school sites; 4 of the sites also have before school programs. Our agency also provides special educational programming through projects and initiatives ,including our successful Get Your Hustle On college readiness program, among others.
