Welcome to Excel Beyond the Bell!

Our Excel Beyond the Bell Collaborative is a public-private partnership created by the Collaboration Council to inspire our youth to realize their full potential by offering safe, quality and accessible out-of-school time programs. Together with the Montgomery County Recreation Department and Montgomery County Public Schools, we offer the EBB Middle School Program at seven schools while striving to increase positive outcomes for youth across the county by creating and supporting a high-quality after school workforce.

“There are a lot of new things that I have learned, that you think you know as a parent, teacher, youth development practitioner, but you really just don’t, so I highly recommend to anyone to take this class!”

“EBB support was the best.  The staff at the schools were all positive, ready to go and informed about our kids.  I always felt that they had the kids’ best interests at heart and really wanted to provide them with a positive after school opportunity.”
