About the Guide

Looking for engaging programs for children/youth when they aren’t in school?

This Activity Guide offers comprehensive, year-round listings of after school and summer programs in Santa Clara County. It includes free programs, scholarships, and programs that target children with special needs and non-native English speakers.

This guide is sponsored by the County of Santa Clara and the Santa Clara County Office of Education to promote out-of-school time learning with a focus on improving access for children and youth from under-resourced families.The sponsors do not specifically endorse any of the programs. Parents should thoroughly research all programs before enrolling their children.

The guide is managed by InPlay, a non-profit whose mission is to help underserved children and youth to discover their unique interests and talents. We welcome your questions and suggestions at: info@inplay.org.
