Our mission: to promote the healthy growth and development of Payson children through an after school program.
Why PCK matters
PCK began when Marcy Rogers discovered that children had no where to go after school. What began as a group of just a few is now a full scale program serving an average of 90 children a day, sometimes more. 90% of the children who attend are from low income or working poor families.
In Payson there is no "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
Who we serve
The children who attend PCK are from family-situations referred to as "at risk." What this means is that often times, children are not in a safe home situation, do not live with both parents, or have other circumstances which would make them considered socially "at risk" in one degree or another.
This makes the services PCK provides even more crucial. PCK serves as a place where children develop friendships, feel safe, encounter adults who nurture and care about them and engage in interesting and fun activities. It is a program that helps children meet expectations of treating others kindly and striving to make good decisions.
Thank YOU to all our sponsors and supporters!
After school activities are the heart of PCK as it serves the children in the Payson community. Activities include tutoring, dance, Love On A Leash, STEM, Robotics, AZYP board games, organized outside games, to mention only a few.
Children receive a snack upon arrival and dinner before going home.
University of Arizona has partnered with PCK and offers STEM & Robotics once per week!
