Enrollment open for YouthQuest afterschool program for 2018-19 school year

A popular afterschool program serving Flint’s youth is welcoming new students aboard.

YouthQuest, a 32-week extracurricular initiative that provides activities structured around academics, physical fitness, science, math, technology, and leadership development, begins Sept. 17 at more than a dozen Genesee County schools.

“YouthQuest offers a safe place for students to explore new interests and build positive relationships with peers and mentors,” says Cheryl Adkins, program director. “In doing so, it prepares them to succeed in school, at home and beyond.”

  • Freeman Elementary (began YouthQuest in August)
  • Holmes STEM Academy
