Mission Oaks CARE Program

CARE Program is an all-day youth recreation program offered during the San Juan Unified School District School Year. The morning portion of the program will include time for distance learning, zoom meetings and silently working on school material. Staff is unable to teach distance learning but will help facilitate connecting participants with their distance learning programs and meetings.
