Families can register their students for EdGE afterschool programs for the 2022-2023 school year. EdGE programs are offered for students in kindergarten through eighth grade at seven schools in Washington County. During the 2021-2022 school year, 399 students attended at least one EdGE afterschool program.
The afterschool programs offer educational, social, and outdoor experiences for students. The students can participate in experiential, creative, thought-provoking activities, and receive homework support. The EdGE program also supports food security and healthy eating habits by providing nutritious snacks.
EdGE Program Director Isaac Marnik says, “Staff are currently preparing for afterschool programming and are excited to start working with students at each of the schools. We look forward to offering a variety of activities and opportunities for students to enjoy.”
Programs are managed by the Mission’s EdGE Site Coordinators and are staffed by school district teachers, outdoor coordinators, artists, college, and high school students.
Registration is open and parents or caregivers of students at these seven schools can register at seacoastmission.org/downeast/edge. For help with registration, please call (207) 546-4466.
