“After School Kidz Zone is so much fun because I love being with my friends, playing board games and going outside to play. I love the latchkey teachers…Ms. Vance helps me with what I need and Jaylen plays games with me in the gym. My mom works there too and I love being with her.”
“Latchkey was fun for me because we had Halloween Parties and went on field trips to the movies and went skating at the Northland Skating Rink. I joined the Ballet Renaissance Dance Company and performed many times at the Detroit Opera House and Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. Ms. Lawton signed me up for ballet and I am glad she did that for me. I have a good foundation in dance and cheer because of my early training in ballet. I remember when I was in first grade we went to an indoor carnival at the Russell Warehouse and we played games, there were rides and lots of food. I made new friends in latchkey and the supervisors were helpful. The supervisors gave me advice and helped me with my homework. Now I am a Junior at Stevenson High School and return to latchkey to help the supervisors clean up, volunteer and tutor the kids. Last year I read books to the kindergarten students at Golightly Education Center.”
“In my experience as a student in the After School Kidz Zone in latchkey program, I can honestly say I wouldn’t be who I am today without it. Not only did the teachers/staff shape me into who I am, I made so many lifelong friends that I don’t know where I would be without. After School Kidz Zone broke me out of the shy shell I used to carry. It gave me a safe space to be myself with no judgement, meet new people, gain mentors, and focus on schoolwork. If I hadn’t been in this program, I would’ve missed out on so many opportunities. For example, I was given the chance of attending Tim Horton’s camp at no cost to my family. It was an amazing experience that I’m thankful for. Any parent looking to place their child in a beneficial after school program, you’re in the right place.”

“Latchkey is so much fun because we go to the gym and I can play basketball. I didn’t have gym this year so I look forward to running around and shooting the ball with my friends in latchkey.”
