Youth CouncilsAfter School Programs -- Afterschool programs take place in City parks, libraries, and with non-profit partners in neighborhoods across the city.  We have also developed a map of after school programming thanks to a partnership with the Harris County Department of Education's Cooperative for After School Enrichment (CASE).
