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.
Recreation Worcester will serve youth through virtual programming and in-person programming at 45 different campuses at parks and schools throughout every district of the City. Some of the programs include:
The City of Worcester's Division of Youth Opportunities and our program Recreation Worcester is dedicated to providing enriching and engaging youth development programming in the summer of 2020 that is free and accessible to youth in Worcester. In response to the needs of our youth we have created a model that follows all CDC guidelines in order to keep our community healthy and safe amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. There will be two opportunities to engage with Rec Worcester; in-person and online.
This summer, in-person spots are limited. There is a maximum of 15 spots per site. Because of this we have expanded to be at more of the City's public parks and schools. In-person programming is FREE and includes food.
Woo Stories is a podcast series created by the Division of Youth Opportunities where youth can learn how to share their own stories by creating and producing their own content. This podcast can be found on SoundCloud and Spotify.
New episodes air every Friday!
