Portions of this fund will be utilized to provide quality after-school programs for at-risk students. Currently, USD 402 is seeking after-school program instructors and aides for the Success 4 U program. 

The Succes 4 U program runs Monday through Friday, follows the USD 402 District calendar, and will be held on student contact days.
