The year-round program is funded by the California Department of Social Services and the ASES Program is funded by the California Department of Education, both programs provide subsidized services.

The A-OK! Program at Adams, Adelante Charter, Cleveland, Franklin, Harding University Partnership, McKinley, and Santa Barbara Community Academy elementary schools (serving students in grades 1 through 6) and the After School Program at La Cumbre Junior High (serving students in grades 7 through 8) operate every school day until 6 p.m. These excellent programs receive funding from the California Department of Education/After School Division through a statewide initiative, After School Education and Safety (ASES) grant program. Each site is supervised by well-trained staff and offers a structured, engaging array of academic and enrichment activities.
