The After School Program supports students by reinforcing basic skills taught during the traditional school day to ensure youth gain the academic and social self-confidence necessary for success. The students participate in a variety of activities in which they can develop skills, build self-confidence, pursue interests, express themselves, and develop positive relationships with caring adults and their peers.


The After School Program’s first priority is to provide its students a safe and engaging place to stay after school. Edna Brewer’s after school program is designed to develop resiliency skills such as peaceful conflict resolution, healthy decision-making, and the self confidence youth need to succeed academically and socially. The After School Program has had an overwhelming response for its services with enrollment filled to capacity and an average daily attendance of 120 students.


The program’s schedule is separated into two block sessions:

  • Block A occurs the first half of the program day and consist of Homework Clubs lead by Academic Mentors and Academic Intervention lead by school day teaching staff.
  • Block B occurs the second half of the program day and consists of 10 enrichment programs to serves the diverse needs and abilities of our students.

The program runs Monday through Friday from school day release to 6pm, including minimum days.


The After School Program is funded by Oakland Fund For Children and Youth (OFCY) and the After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program (Prop. 49).  Our lead agency is Safe Passages.
