The GOAL Line after school program is an organized enrichment
program offered at the Northwest Activity Center (NWAC). It will provide families with much needed care and programming during latch-key hours. Detroit students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade that attend a school within the defined GOAL Line loop are eligible to participate. This program will mirror best practices of other accomplished
after-school programs across the country with a proven track record of success.
Timing: After school programming at the NWAC will be offered following the end of
the school day through 6 p.m., Monday to Friday. Programming will begin September
24, 2018 and run concurrent with the 2018-19 school year.
Transportation: GOAL Line buses will pick students up from schools on the loop and
transport them to the NWAC. At 6 p.m., buses will take students back to a stop on the
GOAL Line loop of a family’s choosing. GOAL Line bus transportation is free. If
preferred, parents can pick their children up directly from the NWAC.
