After School Programmes
The Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS) offers various activities to youth through its After School Programme. We encourage learners, parents and other significant role players to invest in this holistic environment to create better opportunities for communities through the following services:
The Mass participation; Opportunity and access; Development and growth (MOD) programme is an after-school, mass participation programme that provides school-going youth with access to various fun-filled, play-based and modified activities in recreation and sport, as well as in arts and culture, on a daily basis.

DCAS creates next-level opportunities for school-going youth, in recreation and sport, as well as in arts and culture and provides support to interested schools that are neighbouring the MOD Centres. The contact details and GPS coordinates of the schools that are involved in the neighbourhood programme are available online.
