ADULTS & FAMILIES
WSCS offers a variety of programs for adults and families. Whether you are looking to get fit, learn new skills, prepare for college or the workplace, or volunteer with our special events, we have the program for you.
KIDS & TEENS
WSCS offers a variety of afterschool and Saturday morning programs that introduce youth ages 6-20 to new things, sometimes interesting, sometimes challenging. These activities help youth develop a talent or a skill that is ignored by regular schools, widen their areas of interest, meet others who share their interests and make new friendships, find protection from destructive habits like drugs and alcohol, burn up their excess energy, and explore their creativity.
West Side Seniors (WSS) offers a range of services for seniors age 62+ who want to live active, healthy and independent lives, and stay safely in their West Side homes as long as possible. WSS provides information and access to educational resources, member-only transportation services, and specialized fitness programs.
