Enrichment Zone

Enrichment Zone
DPR's Enrichment Zone program is a free, power-packed, hour-long program that provides participants between the ages of 6 to 12 years old with a safe, quiet and conducive space to focus on homework assignments or school projects.  DPR staff will provide basic guidance to ensure youth are on the right track to getting their work started.  During the last 15 minutes, staff will provide an enriching activity with participants.  The activity could range from a personal enrichment activity to a sport tutorial to a STEM activity or more!  The Enrichment Zone program operates from Monday through Friday, after most neighborhood schools release for the day.
