ABC Clubs & ABC Fine Arts Clubs Finish Successful School Year
Many students in the Cincinnati area have nowhere to go at the end of the school day. The majority of afterschool programs that are available to students are fee-based. For families experiencing financial hardships, this limits the availability and access for families that cannot afford the expense of quality afterschool care for their children. At ABC, we believe that all families should have the same opportunities for high-quality enrichment programming.
ABC Clubs and ABC Fine Arts Clubs were created with this in mind. These programs are offered free to the students and their families. ABC partners with local organizations and programs to produce high-quality, fun, and educational activity options for CPS students.
For the 2023 school year, ABC Clubs were provided to 150 CPS students at 3 elementary schools. In only the 4th year of the program, ABC Fine Arts Clubs expanded their reach, and were provided to over 300 CPS students across 14 elementary schools.
As the school year came to a close, each ABC Club and Fine Arts Club program held a showcase to demonstrate all of the new skills and knowledge the students had gained throughout the course. Family and community members arrived at each school to celebrate and participate in these showcases, encouraging the students to continue exploring their newfound talents.
