Welcome to Directions for our Youth at St. Ignatius School! We are excited to share that our robust after-school programming has begun for the 2019-2020 school year. We serve students in 6th-8th grade who attend St. Ignatius School during the day. We look forward to sharing the amazing work throughout this school year!

We’re just one part of a larger organization, DFOY, which serves a number of other after school programs in a number of other schools.

Quarterly Update

This winter here at DFOY @ SIS, many of our outdoor activities move indoors. We cozy up and work on things like art, crocheting, film. This year, we have a record number of students in Crochet Club and two participants have already completed their projects and have moved on to their second projects. Our Film Club is learning about lighting and scriptwriting as they prepare to write their scripts for the movies they will later film. We love to run around in the spring and fall, but we’re also grateful for the opportunity to work indoors in the winter months!
