Youth LIFE After-School Program

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

Youth LIFE is an after-school academic and social enrichment program for students in the 1st through 5th grade who reside within the Mon Valley region, however, children that reside within the Woodland Hills School District receive busing to the program. 

Youth LIFE provides students with a safe and educational place to spend their weekday afternoons and evenings. Youth LIFE provides students an opportunity to improve their math and reading skills by using an online curriculum called Study Island. Students are also provided homework help, plus time for arts and crafts and recreation.

The program runs from mid-September through early May Monday-Friday, 3PM-7PM. Youth LIFE is closed when Woodland Hills School District is closed. The program is completely FREE to all participants.
