All LEAP programs are open every single school day from the time school lets out until 6:00 p.m. Students receive a free snack, homework help, tutoring, physical education and also participate in a variety of fun enrichment activities, including dance, art & crafts, drama productions, nutrition education and much more! And there is NO COST to participate.
Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions (559) 524-6564.

After school programs keep kids safe, help working families and improve academic achievement. More than 28 million children today have parents who work outside the home. Two-thirds of Americans say that it is difficult to find programs in their communities and that not enough programs are available.
Studies show that students involved in after school programs get better grades, attend school more and have improved behavior. They express greater hopes for the future and more interest in school. Teens who participate in after school programs are less likely to skip class, use marijuana and other drugs, smoke, drink alcohol or engage in other risky behaviors.
AB 1567 Gives Priority Enrollment in the LEAP After School Program to Homeless and Foster Youth.
AB 1567 gives priority enrollment in the LEAP After School Program to pupils who are identified as homeless youth and also pupils who are identified as being in foster care. The bill requires an after school program or a before school program to inform the parent or caregiver of a pupil of the right of homeless and foster children to receive priority enrollment in the after school program, and how to request priority enrollment. The bill also requires the administrators of a program to allow self-certification of the pupil as a homeless youth or a foster youth, and would authorize administrators to obtain this information through the school district liaison designated for homeless children.
Please contact Lisa Torres for more information at 524-6564.
