The Your Destiny Afterschool Program provides homework support and fun activities that are educationally based.  Computer time, exercise and interactive games round out the afternoons before parent pickup.   Students are given a  nutritious snack each afternoon to bridge their dietary needs until they reach home.

Your Destiny is also offering an All Day Campers program for children three four and five years old that have completed potty training  During the day these students will  be engaged in academic activities during the day that will prepare them for success when they start school.

During the summer break Your Destiny offers a wonderful Summer Camp program to  school children. Students who attend this program are assigned to small groups based on their grade level.  Each day the students work with a NC licensed teacher in core curriculum subjects like math and reading to prepare them for the upcoming school year.  Summer Campers also participate in computer time, community trips,  outdoor games and more.
