Three ways to use the goal line

GOAL Line Bus & Afterschool program

K-8 students at GOAL Line partner schools have access to high quality transportation and afterschool enrichments. Students take the GOAL Line bus loop to school in the morning, and to the Northwest Activities Center for even more enrichment during afterschool hours. Students participate in a number of engaging courses and activities, including: 

  • Academic Tutoring and Homework Help
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Coding and Robotics
  • Gymnastics
  • Swimming

Trained counselors, teachers, and security officers are always on site and fully engaged. The GOAL Line Afterschool Program includes a $25 per family registration fee (financial support is available). 

GOAL Line BUS Loop

Just want to use the GOAL Line Bus, and don’t want afterschool enrichments? No problem! Students in grades K-8 that attend partner schools can use the GOAL Line bus loop to get to and from school, free of charge. Families drop their students off at the closest GOAL Line school where they will catch the bus and ride to their school of choice. To ensure a safe ride for all, adult monitors accompany students on each camera-equipped bus.

Saturdays in the D

Just because it’s the weekend doesn’t mean learning and growth stops. The GOAL Line’s Saturdays in the D program provides free, high-quality enrichment activities to all Detroit students in grades K–12. Classes may include:

  • Chess
  • Culinary Arts
  • Dance
  • Hip-Hop Writing
  • Martial Arts
  • Robotics
  • Spanish
  • Studio Production

Saturdays in the D also includes programming for parents! This includes topics such as financial literacy, computers, and conflict resolution.
