Drills and Skills Overview

Before school: (6:00am Until 7:30am): At some of our sites students enrolled in the program will participate in our early morning health and fitness before school program. Students will start the morning at 6:00 am, in a community gym where they will exercise alongside some of the best trainers in the city.

After School: (4:00pm Until 6:45pm) This session allows the participants to develop their physical abilities as well as their leadership skills. We use enriching activities such as basketball to help youth model leadership. The Drills and Skills program provide real life experiences in a safe and nurturing environment while providing them with the necessary tools to become leaders for life.

Summer Camp: Drills and Skills runs an eight-week summer camp every year (Site: Yesler Community Center, address 917 East Yesler Way 98122)  The start date is July 5th and ending date August 25th. Each year Drills and Skills engaged over 100 dedicated; youth at this camp. They worked diligently to improve their health and wellness, better their basketball skills, and enhance their abilities to become productive citizens.
