Youth Learning In a Fun Environment (LIFE) After-School Program

Youth LIFE, a program of the Human Services Center Corporation, is an after-school academic and social enrichment program open to 100 youth from 37 economically distressed Monongahela Valley of Allegheny County communities for first through fifth graders residing in mostly the Woodland Hills School District. Youth LIFE provides students with a safe and educational place to spend their weekday afternoons and evenings. Through the implementation of age and skill appropriate tutorial classes, educational seminars, self-improvement classes, cultural field trips, and recreational activities, Youth LIFE students are afforded opportunities that they otherwise would have been unable to experience.

The Youth LIFE Program operates Monday-Friday, 2:45PM-7PM, following the Woodland Hills School District’s schedule. Youth LIFE focuses on academic and standardized test scores improvement, primarily with an on-line curriculum called Study Island, from mid September through late April. The program includes youth completing their homework and receiving tutoring services, a snack, cultural, science and arts and craft lessons, and recreational activities. Youth also attend educational seminars from external agencies, and take field trips. All Youth LIFE Program activities are FREE for all participants.
