Bounce Back After School Program

This year, we will offer after-school opportunities to youth in grades 6-9. This positive development and youth leadership program will provide students with a safe space to receive homework support, and reinforcement, develop life skills, and engage in student-directed service learning opportunities. This program will be a student-led space through which Orange County youth can connect with positive, caring adults and build resilience while enriching and positively impacting their communities. Sessions will take place at our Chapel Hill and Hillsborough locations from 3:30p-6:30p Monday through Friday.

Students will:

  • Receive academic help from Boomerang staff, interns and volunteers
  • Participate in life skills and social and emotional learning skill building activities
  • Earn community service hours through participation in and planning of service learning projects
  • Set personal and academic goals, and receive regular check-ins with Boomerang staff to discuss their progress in reaching them
  • Learn and engage with parents during Family Academies to continue skill building and strengthen family connection
