Attic After School is a 501c3  Faith-Based non-profit. We are a drop in center where we serve the students of Wyoming and surrounding areas. To ensure the safest environment for both students and staff, we require all staff/volunteers to be screened and background checked.


Parents and guardians are encouraged to stop by and observe Attic After School in action. Please check-in with registration upon your arrival. However, parents and guardians will not be allowed to participate in activities with the students unless the required background check and screenings have been completed.

Who is Attic After School for?

Students in 7th–12th grade. Most of our students are from the Wyoming school district. We also have students from other school districts such as Kelloggsville, Potters House, Grand Rapids Public, Godwin, Lee, Jenison, and Grandville.



According to the Wyoming Police Department, a majority of juvenile crime takes place after school and before parents have returned home from work. Teens are often left unsupervised and many are without positive role models. Attic After School exists to bridge this gap.

Meet Darwin - Executive Director

Darwin Buist and his family moved back to Wyoming in 2012, his old stomping grounds. Darwin loves living in the neighborhood near Attic kids who like to stop by (let's face it - he likes to beat them in foosball). He has spent over two decades mentoring teens and in various other capacities. During his spare time, Darwin enjoys playing games, deer hunting, bass fishing, and bow-fishing on the Grand River. You can often see pictures of his latest catch on Facebook.
