AHA! has conducted an after-school program in Carpinteria since 2004, working with teens to help set goals, interrupt bullying and cruel behavior, support their peers, and serve their community. The group now meets once a week on the Carpinteria High School campus. Along with fun and interactive games and opportunities to make new friends, this group also addresses some of the deeper struggles teens face.

Involved teens can earn a monetary stipend (as long as continued funding is available) with full commitment to group attendance and participation.
