After School Advantage
Lydia’s House is Growing Children by providing a safe, nurturing after-school and summer-camp experience for 120 low-income and at-risk youth ages 6-12. Here kids enjoy being kids as part of the Lydia’s House After School Advantage Program.
Lydia’s House offers 160 older youth ages 13-21 a chance to strut their stuff as part of the Youth Zone Entrepreneurial and Technology Training Program. Here teens share their talent with the community.
In June 2003, Lydia’s House officially opened “The Zone” at 3939 South Capitol Street in southwest Washington, DC marking the completion of a joint public-private effort to provide residents of Ward 8 with video conferencing capabilities and three state-of-the-art computer labs.
