21st Century Afterschool Program with Massillon City Schools – AHEAD originally invested, supported and developed the first afterschool programs with the Massillon City schools in 1994. It has been involved in finding supportive solutions and programs to families of the Massillon community since that time. Its role has evolved over time yet the purpose to provide support and services to families has remained the same. Massillon City Schools now coordinates the Afterschool Program but AHEAD contributes in many ways from bringing in outside resources of funding (multiple grants have been received to help with computers and technology for the Afterschool Program that can also be utilized by the day teaching staff as well) to bringing in partners and community resources to provide alternative activities (arts, alcohol and drug prevention education and other services).
