Banyan Youth from Kindergartners all the way up to high school started after school programming this week at Banyan.  The after school program goes beyond “keeping kids off the streets.”  Our educational enrichment helps youth to increase their outcomes in school, improve self esteem and help to strengthen community.  The kids are very excited, and parents are part of our support team to make it all happen.  “I LOVE BANYAN” are the words you often hear from kids.  Our youth have the highest attendance rate at school because if you don’t go to school that day, you  can’t come to Banyan!
