The Woodcraft Rangers provide students at Vernon City School an after school program from 3:00 - 6:00 every weekday. The aim of the program is to prevent school dropout, juvenile delinquency, gang involvement, and substance abuse. Students receive homework help and club themes including drama, karate, arts and crafts, drill team, cartooning, cooking, model building and sports.
Through the club programs, students are exposed to competence building activities which allow them to discover new interests, develop self-esteem, and acquire confidence from the mastery of new skills.
All Woodcraft Rangers' programs are supplemented by field trips and weekend camping activities for children and their parents. Woodcraft Rangers' programs are designed to offer "hands on" activities to promote the development of positive social attitudes and behavior. They strive to provide appropriate role models, along with opportunities to succeed.
Woodcraft Rangers is a nonprofit agency that is funded by the donations of various contributors. Because the organization is nonprofit, 91% of the total funds are allocated to on-site programs and services established for the low income youth of Los Angeles. All possible donations are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
Some of Woodcraft's major contributors include:
