The After-School Program runs Monday through Friday from 3:30 to 5:30 pm and serves at-risk youth in grades K-8. Our program provides a safe haven and opportunities to the youth in the East End of Bridgeport. Each child is assisted in completing schoolwork or assigned worksheets, receives a healthy snack and participates in a rotating schedule of activities that includes dance, performing arts, arts and crafts, and sports rather than the company of the TV set or the local street corner. Programs run throughout the school year.
