​​​​​​Why PCK Matters

PCK began when Marcy Rogers discovered that children had nowhere to go after school.  What began as a group of just a few, turned into a full-scale program now serving an average of 80 children per school day, sometimes more.  Many of the children who attend, have been coming to PCK since Kindergarten.

In Payson, there is not a "Y" program, nor any Boys and Girls Club.  There is only PCK, as a year round program at no cost to those who attend.  

PCK is truly a place for children to belong.  MORE


WHAT IS PCK?


Payson Community Kids is a non-profit organization that provides a secure and enjoyable after-school experience for children, which is particularly helpful for working families in need. At PCK, we strive to provide a well rounded experience for the kids by balancing their school work with fun activities. We make sure that all of the children are fed with snacks and dinner so that hunger never becomes a barrier to learning. PCK ​helps children meet expectations of treating others kindly and striving to make good decisions. It is so important for kids to learn these skills early on in life so that they can grow up to be responsible and compassionate adults. It is programs like ours that help them achieve success and become the best versions of themselves.
