The Spot: After-School Youth Program

En Español

Out-of-school time settings can play a key role in developing a child’s healthy eating and physical activity habits.  Access to nutritious foods in out-of-school time settings could determine a young person’s diet. Additionally, physical activity opportunities get kids moving throughout the day and teach them how to stay active for a lifetime. 

Below is a video on how the City’s after-school program, in partnership with the Alliance For A Healthier Generation, is working to turn Huntington Park into an environment that gives young people  every chance to develop healthy lifestyles. 
The Spot After-School Program provides a place for school-age children to interact with other children their age outside of the classroom. The program is free for children 6–14 years old.
