Rec Link

The Program

recLINK helps children and youth (ages 6-18) participate in recreation during critical after-school hours by identifying and helping them overcome complex and intersecting barriers. In addition, recLINK works in partnership with service providers to increase equitable access to physical activity for all.

Our Mission
