As an elementary principal, I saw the need for after school programs and housed them at our school. I was always so impressed that the director never gave up with all the challenges not only at my school but in all the distrcts and schools she tried to cover. The demand on her time continues to be overwhelming. Fortunately, she can deligate and the people that volunteer and work for her donate much of their time and energies to keep the programs going. There were teachers who didn't want to be bothered with the program, administrators seeing it as another load to carry, difficulty with having to always move equipment around, shortage of supplies and coping with very diversified programs were a few of the many challenges. The founding managing director has kept up the struggle to maintain her vision for 30 years.
