Pulaski County Youth Services provides year-round afterschool and out.-of-school programs for students age 5 – 19. All of Youth Services’ incredible programs are free-of-charge; helping hardworking Pulaski County families save an average of $5,000 a year on childcare. In communities all over the County, our programs are engaging kids after school. We work to help our students achieve more academically and prepare them to be the next generation of community leaders. Annually, thousands of young people improve test scores, increase financial literacy, develop job skills, and build self-esteem in more than 20 Youth Services programs.
