Phoenix Afterschool Centers (PAC)

PAC Snack time

Welcome to Phoenix Afterschool Center
The City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department has long been a leader in school-based programs, offering school year and summer activities.

This tradition has launched Phoenix Afterschool Center, which is fun and educational. It has sites throughout Phoenix located in schools and community centers. Kids spend time in a supervised program in a location close to home.  At Phoenix Afterschool Center, kids make friends, exercise, express themselves through art and learn to take pride in themselves.

Registration for the 2013/14 school year opens on July 18 at 6:30 p.m. You can register online (in the Programs tab, go to the Youth: Summer, Afterschool, Breaks and PAC category) or in person at any Parks and Recreation Department community center when the registration period begins. Once registration opens, you can register online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
