COA Youth & Family Centers partners Milwaukee Public Schools to provide after-school and summer education opportunities to children throughout the community. Offering homework help and positive adult influence outside classroom hours, COA’s Community Learning Centers create safe, character-building environments in which children learn and grow.
Just as important, COA’s Community Learning Centers provide ample opportunities for recreation, exercise, and other youth enrichment activities.
Family Enrichment nights at COA’s Community Learning Centers engage families in high quality activities designed to help them support their child’s learning. All activities have an academic focus from which parents/guardians will leave better prepared to help their child achieve academic success.
