Afterschool Programs

Our Program

The Parks Afterschool Program provides children ages 6-13 the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of activities. The program takes place Monday through Friday from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., a critical time to engage school-aged children in structured activities. Our trained, caring staff create safe, supportive environments for the children that attend our program. Our program complements what children are learning in school and strengthens their sense of belonging in the communities in which they live.

Our programs offer:

  • Academic enrichment
  • Healthy snacks
  • Supervised computer use
  • Team-building activities
  • Sports and fitness
  • Arts and cultural programming
  • Special events
  • Trips around NYC
  • And more!
