BLAST After-School Program
After-School Program – Begun in 1997, BLAST serves pre-teens and teens from the densely populated and ethnically diverse community of Upper Darby. The primary focus of BLAST is improving academic and social skills of youth at risk of being left home alone while parents or caregivers work. The hours between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. are considered “prime time for juvenile crime.” BLAST keeps youth safe and in a supervised environment, with caring adults.

Summer Day Camp began in 1993 in response to discussions with Upper Darby school officials regarding the need for summer programs to help keep children on track academically during the summer months. The program is 5-days a week, for 8 weeks from mid-June through mid-August, and serves 100 children and youth ages 6 through 14 each summer.
