Savannah Youth Net seeks to support children and youth in all Savannah-Chatham communities by connecting families with quality out of school time opportunities. It is challenging that current programs are spread unevenly throughout our county area and lack community-wide coordination of resources. Access to engaging opportunities outside the regular school day and during the summer is important to the healthy development of all youth.
The Savannah Youth Net will provide a virtual resource to connect families to existing out of school time programs, and programs to each other in an effort to coordinate a city and county wide system accessible to all children and families. This collaborative effort will improve the efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of all out of school time programs.
Programs found in the Savannah Youth Net virtual resource provide opportunities to youth to boost learning in a variety of settings. Programs listed here are educational, recreational and all support positive youth development. Either after school hours or over the summer, Savannah families will have an easy way to search for and connect with programs in their neighborhood and beyond. Through this collaborative effort by program providers, we will build a strong network of opportunities to keep youth safe, inspired, healthy and on the path towards a positive future.
