The Girls Place After School Program operates in conjunction with the Alachua County School Calendar. We transport girls from many Alachua County schools to Girls Place for an afternoon of structured activities. We provide a wide variety of activities based on the components of physical, emotional, spiritual, environmental, intellectual, social, and occupational wellness. This curriculum, with an emphasis on homework completion, allows Girls Place to provide a well rounded experience for the girls. Girls will participate in arts and crafts and field trips, interacting with special guests, and much more.
Girls ages 5-15 can participate in our after school program. Girls are divided into groups based on the grade they are entering at the beginning of the school year:
Kindergarten-1st Grade – Pink Group
2nd Grade – Red 2 Group
3rd Grade – Red 3 Group
4th Grade – Yellow 4 Group
5th Grade – Yellow 5 Group
6th-7th Grade – Green Group
8th-9th Grade – Blue Group
Each group has designated classroom space in addition to access to about 5 acres of green space and a gymnasium.
