All adults over 18 may be eligible for SPARK as well as a discounted transit pass.

Drop in times: Mondays, 1-4:30 pm; Wednesdays and Fridays, 8:30 am to 12 pm
Once eligibility is confirmed through Community Services, the parent/guardian meets with the PROkids Coordinator who assists them in finding the right program for their child, identifies whether transportation or equipment assistance is needed, and discusses what amount the parent is able to contribute towards the total program cost. Each child choosing PROkids receives a maximum of $300 per calendar year with the specific amount depending on the program cost and the parent’s ability to contribute.
