Key Programs Offered: 

After School Program This program provides 6-12 year-olds with a safe haven after school and helps them advance in school through intensive academic assistance. The program runs Monday through Friday from 2:30 to 5:30 pm. Ensuring children's safety aids families by giving their parents peace of mind to focus on work and education. Participants in this program and their parents are connected to additional support services within and outside of Federated Dorchester Neighborhood Houses' extensive system. Altogether, the Log School After School program offers a potent combination of academic encouragement, family support, risk reduction, and violence prevention.
