Welcome to Cops n Kids of Tarpon Springs, FL.

The Cops 'n Kids Program opened in 1994 and is a partnership between the City of Tarpon Springs and the Tarpon Springs Housing Authority (HA). The afterschool, holiday break and summer program provides youth learning, enrichment and health opportunities.

There are no Program fees. Scholarships are provided to youth that meet the eligibility requirements. Youth must be between the ages of 9-14 years old at enrollment (younger youth are accepted), must live in Pinellas County and hold free/reduced lunch benefit for school meals or other parent proof of income. Cops 'n Kids Program youth range in age between 8-16 years old. Our daily Program schedule includes academic support, social and emotional skill development, technology awareness, leadership skills, physical fitness and wellness, and personal enrichment such as visual and performing arts to enhance positive youth development.

We have a dynamic Program staff team that really love being with youth inspiring them to experience great success and have fun every day. The special character of the Cops 'n Kids Program is the family culture shared between the youth and staff. This value is reflected in long term youth engagement, high daily youth attendance rates and seasoned staff in the Program. Over the years we have enjoyed seeing so many youth graduate from high school and continue being successful in many ways. We are especially proud to have youth become Junior Youth Leaders and full time Program staff when they become adults.
