Waverly on Wednesdays (WOW)

Each Wednesday during the School Year.


After School Program

For Elementary and Middle School Students | 3:30 PM - 5:15 PM

We believe that the lives of children are significantly influenced by their relationships with those around them. As people of faith who believe that we all benefit when children of our community are well provisioned, Waverly Road implemented an innovative and free after-school program on Wednesday afternoons to address the needs of children, focusing on homework assistance and serving the community. We also provide healthy, nutritious meals as well as positive role models.


  • Transportation: Free pick-up at any city school. We will add schools as needed.
  • When: Most Wednesdays during the school year.
  • What Happens: We have free time to choose activities such as games and socializing, as well as quiet time for homework, reading, arts, crafts, music, and group-building activities.
  • Where: WRPC Youth Suite, 2nd Floor
  • What Else: Dinner (See Below)
