Fort Worth at 6

Fort Worth At 6

Five of Fort Worth’s community centers have incorporated FW@6 into their regular programming.

FW@6 is a program that aims to reach at-risk youth who are in need of safe places and structured activities that encourage responsible community stewardship. The program was established in 1992 as a response to increased crime and gang activity among the area’s young adults.

The program provides support for community centers’ afternoon (after-school) and evening programming, as well as youth sports and extended hours for older youth and young adults. In addition, FW@6 offers enrichment and recreational activities to area youth, providing them with educational and personal development, employment readiness, life skills and a sense of community pride and responsibility.

Hours and locations

6-9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday

Offered at Como Community Center, MLK Jr. Community Center, Northside Community Center, Sycamore Community Center and Worth Heights Community Center.
