As the summer rolls into a cool fall season, ARFC sends its best wishes to all the students starting and returning to school. We are gearing up for another academic year at the Academy Street Firehouse youth program, where we host more than 60 students in after-school activities. With us, they have a safe space in which to learn, play, grow, be creative, and express themselves. We are excited for our new and returning participants!

ARFC is also proud of our staff members, many of whom are returning to classes for the fall. It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to take on mission-driven work while pursuing higher education and maintaining a life at home. We know this level of dedication can be difficult at times. ARFC thanks you for making the decision to continue your learning, and we appreciate what this brings to the work you do in the community.

Wishing all of our students a happy start to a new school year!
