Yaileen Kren-Colon, a 7th grader, has been a part of the WSCS After-school Enrichment program since first grade.

I go to WSCS because it is a great option for afterschool. I made many friends with other kids and the staff. From boxing and playing football to building a bike and a garden, I have acquired many different skills. The staff always help me with my homework and they’ve helped me develop my leadership skills. I was chosen to represent WSCS at the 2014 Community Leadership Institute in Cincinnati. I love going to the center! It is a great place for me to learn and further develop myself in a fun envi-ronment.”

Afterschool partners include:
            • City of Buffalo Community Police Officers
            • Daemen & D’Youville College volunteers
            • Grassroots Gardens
            • GOBike Buffalo
