This sliding-scale program is designed to meet the needs of all Peralta families, with enrichment classes and homework time, along with active and quiet play. It reflects the Peralta community’s longstanding commitment to integrated programming that does not separate children by income.
P.E.A.C.E. is administered by the nonprofit group East Bay Agency for Children (EBAC), and partially funded by the California After-School Education and Safety Program (2002′s Prop. 49). This allows EBAC to offer the program at reduced cost to those who meet income requirements. Full scholarships are available. See tables below for details.
