• We understand that parents want an affordable after-school program that helps their children  improve their academic achievement as well as participate in constructive activities. We also understand teens need special programming to not just meet their needs but also peak their interests. Club Larkin meets both needs. 

    Academic Success: Teens are given help with homework, tutoring, and remediation, but they also work with staff to plan for graduation and beyond.

    Career Prep: Through different programs teens learn about exploring careers, preparing for job interviews, and planning for  their futures.

    Giving Back: Teens are given the chance to be leaders and give back. They select their own service projects for the community and the Club.
