On the Corner is a free after-school program that provides a safe and positive environment to children in the Yakima Valley. We focus on developing social, physical, emotional, and academic skills, and give kids the opportunity to discover hobbies and interests that they otherwise might not be able to explore. By enabling children to be themselves and facilitating fun, yet educational activities, we create an atmosphere where kids are excited about learning, grow as individuals, and build self-confidence.
Our program includes art, science, P.E., technology centers, in addition to tutoring and fun educational games. At OTC, our students gain an understanding of community and world needs by participating in service projects. Our goal is to foster empathy and build upon the belief that every person counts and every single person can make a difference!
Each afternoon across the US, one in four children are alone and unsupervised after school. Our goal is to change that statistic.
