After-School Clubs and Organizations

The Okemos Education Foundation funded extra-curricular student clubs and organizations in every building and at every grade level in the district from 2010-2018.  After-school clubs provide important opportunities for our students to explore new interests, develop leadership skills, and interact with peers in a safe environment.  Many graduates agree that it is these extra-curricular experiences that shaped their happiest school memories. The OEF was proud to be able to aid in the continuation of these clubs during a time when the district faced severe budget constraints.

How were clubs selected to be funded by the OEF?

The list of clubs offered each year in Okemos schools is determined by the administrative team in each building.  The OEF board simply determined the amount of funding it was able to contribute each year to the district in support of clubs, and the district determined which clubs it would offer.
