On Thursday, Jan. 21, City Manager Edward M. Augustus Jr. announced the city’s plans to expand Recreation Worcester, its popular youth initiative, into a yearlong after-school program.

Beginning Monday, Feb. 1, and running through May 26, students in grades 3-12 who attend any school in Worcester can attend programs at six schools, Worcester East Middle, Goddard Elementary, Claremont/Woodland Academy, Chandler Elementary, Quinsigamond Elementary and Elm Park Community School.

In addition to offering academic support, activities available to the students include visual arts, music and physical recreation.

Worcester East Middle is among the schools participating in the expanded Recreation Worcester program.
