Johnston Afterschool Program

The mission of the Johnston After-School Enrichment Program is to empower students to develop their character and leadership skills and to become responsible citizens in a challenging and rapidly changing community.

The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs partnered with Johnston Elementary, over seven years ago, to help do just that. This program is designed to combine an affordable after-school enrichment program with nationally accredited programs from Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Our program was put in place so that the students of Johnston Elementary have greater access to quality programs and services. Our goals are to expand and to provide an opportunity for every child to achieve academic and social success.
