Family guide to the GOAL Line after school program

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.

After School Program Includes:

■ Snacks and Free Play: Upon arrival at the NWAC, we will provide students a
chance to unwind with a short session of free activity and a snack.
■ Homework Assistance/Tutoring: Stop the battles over homework! We will assist
your child with homework.
■ Swimming: We will offer supervised open swim, as well as swim instruction from
trained professionals.
■ Robotics: Engaging activities will make learning fun and generate student interest
in STEM courses.
■ Sports: Students will participate in structured team sports.
■ Outdoor Play: After sitting in a classroom all day, there’s nothing like a little fresh
air and exercise outside!
■ Arts and Crafts: We will give students the tools they need to spark imagination
and creative play.
■ Other Supervised Activities: Students will participate in a variety of other activities
throughout the week, including games, supervised internet access, movies, reading
and board games.
