School-Age Program

Explore and Excel Clubs

Learning new skills – whether for personal interests or future career goals – is critical for youth.

The Explore and Excel Clubs at Erie House develop critical skills that promote lifelong learning and prepare youth to tackle new challenges. 

Over the course of 8-10 weeks, we teach and reinforce life skills that children will need in the future, while also exposing them to new opportunities. By exploring potential interests through fun, hands-on activities (desktop publishing, art, dance, science, nutrition and more), we’re able to help youth develop into well-rounded members of the community.
