Out-of-School Time Programs

What happens on school grounds — before, during and after school — can have a huge impact on a child’s health and learning. TrueNorth Community Services partners with local school districts in West Michigan to produce quality, motivated citizens through safe and fun educational enrichment opportunities that will broaden the horizons of both the students and their communities.

Project FOCUS 

Project FOCUS (For Our Children's Ultimate Success), a TrueNorth community service, is an out-of-school time program that provides individualized academic support to K-8th grade students while engaging participants in Enrichment Club activities and field trips supporting Cultural Awareness, College and Career Readiness, Health and Nutrition, Character Education, Youth Development, STEAM, Music and Performing Arts. 

TrueNorth operates Project FOCUS at Baldwin, Hart, Holton, Muskegon Heights, Three Oaks, and Walkerville through the federally-funded 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program in partnership with the Michigan Department of Education.
