After-School Programs

Promise After-School Programs are a crucial support for many families. For kids, it’s a welcoming place where they can make friends, build important life skills, express how they’re feeling, and connect with caring leaders. For parents, it provides some extra buffers so they can recharge or take on more hours at work, knowing that their child is in safe hands.

For kids attending nearby Lord Strathcona Elementary, we offer after-school pickup so there’s a seamless transition between school and Promise. Applications from families with financial need who live within the V6A postal code (Downtown Eastside) are prioritized.
