Lafayette Library and Learning Center Foundation SWELL CENTER
The Student Wellness Summer and Winter Program is a partnership of the Lafayette Library & Learning Center Foundation (LLLCF), and the City of Lafayette in collaboration with the Lafayette Library and Learning Center (LLLC).
The purpose of this program is to address the emotional, social, and creative interests of teens. This program is for 6th - 12th graders who need a place to: spend time with friends, make new friends, explore passive and active programming, engage in community projects.
SWELL is back for Spring break!
Following a fun SWELL ( a space in which students can find community ) pilot program at the Lafayette Library this past summer and Winter Break, we are excited to let you know that we are returning over the Spring holiday break. SWELL will be available to all students grades 6-12!
Thanks to some great feedback from the kids, parents, and members of the community, we have brought on Salvador Avila and Jessica Guzman to coordinate onsite activities. They both currently work at Wellness programs at our local high schools, and will bring engaging, integrated activities to SWELL.
