The Las Cruces Youth Services Section Afterschool Program was designed to provide an affordable, quality after school program for children during the regular school year. 

The program helps children develop their social, academic, and physical skills in a safe and caring environment. The three major components of the program are recreational, nutritional, and educational with all three given the same importance. 

Staffing

The Program runs concurrent with the Las Cruces Public School Calendar and serves over 300 school-age kids. Program staffing uses a 15 to 1 ratio, and are professional, motivated, and positive role-models for the children.

Fees

The program is available to children kindergarten through grade 5 and the cost per semester is $400, or four payments of $100.
