Recreation Worcester is a free, year-round, out-of-school time program for youth run by the City of Worcester. Youth participate in curriculum based learning while focusing on our three main enrichment activities: athletics, arts, and academic programming. Youth also engage with community partners that help build programming and introduce participants to a number of positive, healthy, fun, educational activities.
Food will be provided to all youth that participate in the Recreation Worcester Program provided by the Worcester Public Schools and/or Friendly House.
Transportation will not be provided by Recreation Worcester.
