RAZE targets low achieving students, at-risk youth students

(1) from schools that do not engage at-risk youth in after-school programs,

(2) from low-moderate income families,

(3) with low academic performance,

(4) whose home environment is unsafe,

(5) who are identified as “hard to reach,”

(6) who are not participating in any other extracurricular activities,

(7) from single-parent homes, and/or

(8) who are identified by social services as victims of violence, abuse and neglect, or homelessness.

At-risk students may enroll through a referral process, or parent recommendation, or as walk-ins.  The process for referring students is centered on the established criteria as follows:


Poor academic achievement (retained one or more years, grades below potential of student, sudden drop in grades, failed two or more subject in  report period);


Excessive absences from school (unexcused, excessively late, frequently leaves before school day is over);


Repeated disciplinary problems in school or with peers (routinely demonstrates aggressive or anti-social behavior, routinely demonstrate inappropriate, negative, attention-seeking behavior), involved in delinquent activities, suspensions from school for disciplinary reasons);


Unresolved identified health and human services needs (homeless and currently living in our emergency shelter unit, family in crisis, victim of parental abuse, substance abuse, suicidal tendencies, low self-esteem, or family income too low to provide basic necessities or unable to afford other after-school programming).

Court ordered from the local magistrate or juvenile justice system



All programs will take place after the regular school day from 3:30 to 6:30 PM when most children are left unattended.  .   


What are your hours of operation?

Raze follows the local school districts calendar. Because our students tend to come from different school districts, if there is a closing in any one of the districts represented, our program will also be closed.  This policy includes  Spring Break.   If any one school is a half-day school, Raze will be closed.. Raze is closed for the following holidays: New Years, Good Friday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Martin Luther King Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas break.  We are also closed on days when any of our representing school district is closed schools due to snow or inclement weather.

School Days: Monday - Friday, 3:30 - 6:30 p.m

Do you need to be a GHRM member to register?

Definitely not. In fact, only about 70% of our students do no attend GHRM. We serve the community and not just the church. .


How do I register my child?

You can register by coming directly to our facility or by calling our facility during business hours. 

Registration forms will be available in late Summer 2021
