||Afcaam Center has two After School Programs, one on Michigan Avenue and one at St. Columbkille. We serve families who have children in Grades Kindergarten through Grade 5. AFCAAM also offers one-on-one and group mentoring for teen girls and boys ages 10 to 17 years of age. Group mentoring is held Tuesday nights from 5-7pm and the one-on-one program places a mentor with a mentee for 12 months. Both programs offer excellent opportunities for service and volunteer hours.
|| There are many ways to gain service hours at Afcaam. Below are ways to Volunteer or Intern:
