The third floor of the Seminole Heights United Methodist Church can be a busy place after school. In one room, decked out with posters of Van Morrison and the Pretenders, kids take ukulele lessons. In the next, in front of a mural of purple flowers, a parkour class is going on, where kids can learn a military-style training method that builds agility and balance.
TRIBE, a nonprofit started by Kristen Brown, opened nine months ago in Seminole Heights. It now offers about 55 after school classes, ranging from fiber arts to Pokemon, each week. It has no affiliation with the church, and everything from the wall decorations to the class instructors time has been donated. Each class costs $5.
