Bellevue Community Center started its 2020-2021 After School Program this past week on September 28, 2020. The program will take place Monday - Friday, at Bellevue Community Center from the hours of 3pm -6pm. The program will run until the duration of the school year (June) and will engage students in various types of programs in art, social sciences, technology and healthy living.
The goal of the program is to create youth who can transition successfully into adulthood with job readiness and life skills. This program will be a job for the youth in this program. In the afternoons students will work with selected staff working towards specific tasks/goals all with the intent to service their community.
List of Programs Include:
Art Beautification of Surrounding Communities
Community Service against Homelessness

Camera and Video Editing
Video Gaming Club (XBox games
Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle
Bellevue Chess Club
Bellevue Staff are excited for what this program could bring to students in the community and formulated this program to specifically reach youth that need productive outlets.
“I was an ‘at risk youth’ growing up. My eyes were open to a lot of fatal ways of life. Luckily some good people took me under their wing and I found positive outlets,” reflects Adam Underwood, one of the program directors. “With a combination of games, social and emotional learning we are building a clubhouse atmosphere as a haven that will combine fun activity with positive life skills.”
The program currently has 11 active students. And is drop-off\pick-up only. If you would like you sign your child up for this program please email Daniel Elkins at firstname.lastname@example.org
