The Stagg Street After School Program is designed to provide literacy, academic enrichment, and secure constructive alternatives for students’ ages 5 to 12 in the Williamsburg/Bushwick area.
Stagg Street Center for Children After School Program, reinforces the educational and literacy elements that our surrounding public schools offer which provide homework assistance and academic support to help students meet state standards in reading/language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science.
A broad range of activities are based on students’ needs and interests. Also, the program has educational components that offer a diversity of supplementary programs and activities that reinforce and compliment the school’s academic program. This includes positive youth development methods and prevention activities that may use visual and performing arts, community service-learning, recreation and physical activity, health/nutritional promotion, and career awareness that are based on student needs and interests.
The activities vary and are organized on a calendar year. Students choose their activities from the daily schedule. Academic support is provided for all students and activities reflect students’ interests in athletic, recreation, technology, arts and crafts, gardening, food and nutrition, and other areas. The daily schedule includes a meal based on New York State Child Adult Care Food Program nutritional guidelines, and regulations from the New York City Department of Health and the Administration of Children Services.
