So Much More Than an After School Program

H2O youth are empowered through a variety of research based programming including Support Groups, Life Skills & Character Education, Recreational Activities and Field Trips, Service Opportunities, Mentoring, Tutoring, as well as Focus groups ran inside the Valley View School District 365U Middle and High Schools.


These programs offer a balanced approach to meet the Emotional, Physical, Intellectual, Social, and Spiritual needs of our youth.
