Swift After School is 20! 

Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear Swift After School! Happy Birthday to you!

This year Swift After School celebrates its 20th year! Back in 2002 the first Swift After School program launched at Palomino Intermediate, today we still have a program there every Monday afternoon for 4th-6th graders. In addition to Swift After School at Palomino Intermediate, we now have programs at Homeward Bound on Tuesdays, at Wilson Elementary on Wednesdays, and Palomino Primary on Thursdays.

Swift After School is the highlight of our week every week, we love being able to stay connected with our campers and participants all year long! This academic year we rotate every three weeks between arts and crafts, STEM experiments and activities, and games/sports.

If you are interested in volunteering at Swift After School, please email us at info@swiftyouth.org


It’s that time of year again, Giving Tuesday is nearly here! This year Giving Tuesday is on November 29th, 2022, that is just a little under three weeks away from today. This is a global day of unprecedented giving meant to encourage generosity and humanity all around the globe.

Swift’s goal is to bring in $50,000 between now and Giving Tuesday and we need your help! We will be having an event at our office on the evening of November 29th to celebrate the day and we’d love you to attend! We have some exciting games and plans for the evening including our own spin on the Jimmy Fallon special “Can You Feel This?”. If you are interested in attending please email or call us!

October Swift Saturday

On October 15th we hosted our first Swift Saturday event of the school year. We welcomed 59 kids to participate in Halloween and fall themed activities. We were thrilled to host another Swift Saturday just a week later at the Arizona Science Center. Our Teen Leadership Board and their teen board teamed up to provide a Spooky Science event! The kids had so much fun at both! We are excited to be back at Swift Saturday next weekend, November 19th!

​Do you have a computer?
Is a new laptop on your holiday wish list? Us too! We would love to take your old one off your hands! We are looking for a gently used, not too old laptop for volunteers to be able to work on when they come into our office. We only ask that you wipe the computer before it comes to us. Thank you so much!

Holiday Parties are right around the corner!
Mark your calendars, December 16th we have two Holiday parties at Palomino Intermediate and December 23rd we have a third party at Wilson Elementary. Keep an eye out for signups coming soon to volunteer at one of the most magical programs Swift has!
