Afterschool Program Directory Raffle Winners Announced

This year’s spring outreach for the Arizona Afterschool Program Directory included another raffle for Rockets to the Rescue kits and we have delivered these kits to the winning programs!

Over 100 program sites were updated or added to the Program Directory, gaining more visibility in their community. Three of these programs that updated their sites on the map won prizes by participating in this spring program drive.

These lucky raffle-winning programs are:

  • AZ STEAM Shop
  • City of Chandler’s Tumbleweed Recreation Center summer camp
  • Paradise Valley Schools Mascot Clubs

Congratulations to those programs and we hope your youth will enjoy their rocket-building and problem-solving!

AzCASE’s Afterschool Directory is Arizona’s only comprehensive, state-wide, bilingual resource that brings together providers and parents to expand access to quality OST programs that are critical to youth development.

Rockets to the Rescue challenges youth with one mission: in light of the natural disasters such as Typhoon Haiyan, National 4-H Council created this curriculum set for youth to design and build an aerodynamic food transportation device that can deliver a payload of nutritious food to disaster victims. Youth will learn engineering concepts, develop math skills, learn about nutrition and help solve a relevant, global issue.
