There are also incentives for attendance in the program. Students who attend will earn a backpack full of school supplies from United Way of St. Lucie County, the program’s other sponsor. Also, children’ who attend two or more weeks will be entered to win a 50” Smart TV.

Participating locations include: Garden Terrace, Ken Pruitt and Percy Peek locations of the Boys & Girls Club, Lincoln Park Community Center, SWORD Outreach & Mentoring Center and E.N.D.
