    2. 2. What Is Springboard? Springboard is a crucial new after school program designed by Springboard’s visionary doctoral level educators. Springboard has been designed to take advantage of after school time so that our children can receive the help that they need and deserve. Springboard’s certified teachers insure that children learn and that they are having fun in Springboard’s balanced and safe extended day program.
