Best Summer Opportunity for Westside Kids

The Youth Program at the El Rio Neighborhood Center

Fun, games, health care, movies, lunch and so much more is available to kids at this vibrant, welcome summer program run at the bustling El Rio Neighborhood Center. Kids can sample arts and crafts classes, play some ping pong, learn to dance or head outside for some basketball under the covered courts. There are field trips, movie outings, swim opportunities and even academic instruction available to any and all comers. All this and an outstanding staff, as well, including our favorite program associate, the talented and dynamic Cassandra Lock.
