Youth Programs & ActivitiesFrequently Asked Questions

How do I become an enrichment instructor or aide?

You need to have a desire to learn the basic skills required to work enrichment classes. Training will be provided. Complete a job application to get started.

Does my child have to attend the school hosting an enrichment program?

No. Children can attend any program at any facility (if they meet the age requirement).

Does my child have to be potty-trained to attend a class?

Yes, unless it is a class designated for parent and child. If children attend a class by themselves, they must be potty-trained.
