After-School Program

Our Program

The Memphis Rox After School Program is designed to enrich youth through mentorship, personal development, mental health awareness, physical development, and creative arts. The program is intended for those 12 – 17 years old and is provided to the community at no cost. On Monday through Thursday from the hours of 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM, youth will participate in guided climbing activities and creative arts while also receiving homework assistance and a nutritious meal from our in-house cafe, Juice Almighty.

Access for All

Memphis Rox offers no-cost after school programming for youth ages 12 to 17. With no barrier to entry, working families can trust their children will be supervised in a safe and enriching environment from Monday through Thursday between the hours of 2:30 PM and 5:30 PM. 

Quality Programming

At Memphis Rox, climbing is just an access point to mentorship. In our afterschool program, youth receive assistance with homework and a nutritious meal at no cost every day. They’ll bond with other youth from diverse backgrounds, participate in activities like gardening and art making, and learn valuable life skills such as cooperation and trust through the sport of rock climbing. Our goal isn’t just to provide a safe environment, but to create an experience that bolsters their performance at school while encouraging personal growth.

Professional staff

Rox employs experienced professionals to oversee a curriculum that supports youth development. Our programming is rooted in three pillars: recreation, education and emotional well-being. All staff undergo extensive background checks and training to ensure youth receive quality mentorship that helps them to flourish.

Happy parents

This program is perfect timing for my daughter to attend as she transitions into womanhood. She is surrounded by her peers and caring adults that provide support and encouragement.”
