After School Program

What is C.A.R.E.S.?

The Mt. Diablo Collaborative for Academics, Recreation & Enrichment for Students (CARES) After School Program provides academic, recreational and enrichment activities for children and their families after traditional school hours. The staff is committed to ensuring that the after school children have safe environments, caring adult supervision and expanded learning experiences.

Want to start a club after school?

Starting a new club or program after school is fun and easy!

Stop by the CARES office in AC57 to talk to Ms. Sonia about getting a program started!

Club Ideas


On May 14th and 15th, students from CARES at YVHS and MDHS had the opportunity to participate in the annual CalSAC After School and Summer Challenge. The purpose of this event is to advocate and lobby for after school programs and funding. Students learned about bills and how laws are passed on day one. On day two, students had assigned legislative visits and they were able to share their stories on how their after school program has made an impact in their life. CARES would like to thank all the brave students that participated and would also like to thank our staff for joining us this year!
