After School Program
The After School Program provides quality educational, recreational, and social programs for students in a structured and safe environment. Daily nutritional snacks, home work assistance, tutoring, and character education that emphasizes responsible behavior, respect for others, and positive attitudes are the core components of the program. Supportive and caring staff interact with the students in group and individual settings and also provide parent support.
Summer Day Camp
The Summer Day Camp provides a safe nurturing environment for youth during the out -of -school season. The camp offers activities that promote recreation and skill development in teamwork, leadership, socialization, independence, and access to educational resources for students who need additional time to master academic content. The campers also participate in learning-based activities, in the areas of math and reading, to avoid “summer learning loss”.
Due to state-mandated closures related to COVID-19, the Food Pantry is currently closed. However, ALCS continues to serve the community by means of drive-through service for food distribution. The Food Pantry also sponsors a monthly food distribution through a mobile food pantry. Mobile food distribution is scheduled monthly on the second Tuesday. The Food Pantry partners with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.
Positive Impact provides assistance to adjudicated youth, in collaboration with the Juvenile Restitution Program and the Juvenile Crime Prevention Council. Positive Impact seeks to provide a structured supervised environment for juveniles to learn personal accountability for decisions, build self esteem, and promote character development.
Summer Feeding Program
ALCS' Summer Food Service Program provides free nutritional breakfast/lunch for children, up to 18 years old. This allows children to have access to nutritious meals and snacks even when school is not in session. The program is a collaborative partnership with Craven County Schools.
