  • Don't they offer anything at the school? If not, start here: after school programs for teens just enter your area. Something may come up that suits your needs.

  • The YMCA has a "scholarship" program if you can't afford their prices. What you have to do is fill out a membership application, and talk to someone about the scholarship program. On the scholarship app, it will ask how much you can afford to pay monthly for membership. You can put in as little as $1. My mom used to only pay $10 a month for her plus 3 kids.

  • My teen is the volunteer "homework helper" at the afterschool program that she attended while she was in elementary school. Afterschool programs tend to cut off at 12.

  • The middle schools in our area have many free after school activities. Art, Dance, Sports, photography, community service etc. Of course High school have many activities as well. Check with your school first. Then check with the Parks and Recreation department in your town. Boys and Girls clubs and YMCA are great ideas as well ( We don't have them in our town however ) Maybe they could even do some volunteer work with younger kids. Colleges love to see this on applications.
