WRAP - Home




Long Beach Unified School District; Action Youth America (AYA), the City of Long Beach Parks and Recreation and Marine; Boys and Girls Clubs of Long Beach; Camp Fire USA; Conservation Corps of Long Beach;  and YMCA of Greater Long Beach work together to implement a city-wide WRAP (Winners Reaching Amazing Potential) program offered after school and during Thanksgiving, spring, winter, and summer recesses. Through these programs, thousands of local students and their families have access to convenient, no-cost, high-quality expanded learning programs. The WRAP program is designated as a balanced mixture of academic enrichment and assistance and physically and emotionally healthy activities that are fundamental components of youth development.

Mission and Vision
