Karamu House will implement the Cultural Arts and Education After School Program, a prevention program for students age 8-15 in Fairfax, Central, Hough, Glenville, and surrounding communities in Ohio.

The primary activities will include after school classes in writing, arts, and construction that will culminate with a youth production.
