Mission Waco’s Youth After School Program focuses on service, social skills, health, spiritual growth, academics and art. Our programming is purposeful and is structured as follows:

Academic Time: The youth are given specific times to do their homework or enrichment activities for math and literacy.

SAT ACT Tutoring: We offer SAT prep, tutoring, and general skills to help Jrs and Srs prepare for college.

Elective Classes: The youth are offered a variety of classes every semester, such as:

  • Urban Expressions Art Class with Erin Adams, Director at Mission Waco Urban Expressions
  • Jubilee Theatre Drama Class with Afton Foreman, Director at Jubilee Theatre
  • Individual Music Lessons: Cello, Piano, and Guitar are currently available for select youth through our Creative Arts program.
  • STEM (Science Tech Engineering Math) 
  • Book Clubs
  • Bear Adventures with Stephanie Davis, Staff at Baylor Outdoors

Free Time:  Our youth spend time together shooting pool, playing basketball or video games, and fun activities.

Bible Study:  Every week, youth have a Bible study led by leaders from Baylor Urban Missions.

Service: Saturdays from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. our youth run a Kings Club at a local apartment complex. Other volunteering includes Friends for Life, Nursing Homes and Capital Food Bank at different times throughout the year.
