A network of more than 50 out-of-school time providers in Las Cruces, El Paso and Ciudad Juárez will offer a wide range of summer programing through the City of Las Cruces and a number of other local providers.
The BOOST network is led by United Way of El Paso County in partnership with the Paso del Norte Health Foundation (PNHF). It supports “quality afterschool programs, promoting safe places for youth, opportunities for enrichment and environments to learn healthy habits,” PNHF said in a news release.
Programming is focused on “improving a range of health outcomes for disconnected youth,” PNHF said.
