The Out 2 Learn is a searchable database to help parents/guardians and youth find after school and summer activities for youth across Greater Houston.

The Out 2 Learn network is a public-private partnership committed to expanding access to high-quality out-of-school programming for all Houston-area youth. Students and families need access to quality programs, and they need to be able to connect easily with the organizations providing these opportunities. Too often, quality programs have been concentrated in certain limited areas and not available to all.
