Area Resources for Community and Human Services (ARCHS) has issued $450,00 in funding to provide summer enrichment programs for more than 740 youth at 22 St. Louis area locations managed by 10 area youth development organizations including: Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis, Gene Slay’s Girls & Boys Club, Midtown Community Services, Northside Youth & Senior Service Center, Provident Behavioral Health, Unleashing Potential, SPROG/Horizons, Stray Dog Theatre/Arts in Mind, Wesley House Association, and Youth & Family Center.

In addition, ARCHS is partnering with HealthWorks! Museum (traveling show assembly around health/wellness), Operation CEO (entrepreneurship program), and Mentors in Motion (math & music mentorship program) to further enhance the summer programs.

This year, the programs will intentionally address learning loss caused by the COVID-19 pandemic with a focus on academic support/enrichment, social and life skills, health and recreation, character development, and parent and family involvement.  Each day, a nutritious meal or snack will be provided.
