The Salvation Army operates hundreds of after school programs in low and moderate income neighborhoods across the country.
By the end of 4th grade, low-income students are already two years behind grade level.
By the time they reach the 12th grade, the same kids are four years behind.
Our first priority is to meet basic human needs, but we recognize the importance of programs that go beyond the basics of food, shelter, clothing and safety. In addition to meeting basic needs, The Salvation Army strives to provide programs that will help children thrive during crucial developmental years - from after school programs and summer camps, to childcare and toys at Christmas.
Salvation Army Troops
The Salvation Army has a program for children known as troops. this character building ministry is an important part of The Salvation Army's mission. It not only teaches our youth practical life skills, but also tells them about the love of God and how it relates to their lives. Here kids earn badges much like boys and girl scouts. Our Troops programs are linked with SAY (Salvation Army Youth) week at Camp Arnold, where the kids can earn special emblems that they can only get at camp!
Our troops programs are on Thursday nights from 7-8pm at 2525 Rucker Ave.
Our Troops are divided into age groups as follows,
Moonbeams: preschool-Kinder aged boys and girls
Sunbeams: 1st-5th grade girls
Girl Guards: 6th-12th grade girls
Explorers: 1st-4th grade boys
Rangers: 5th-8th grade boys
