Mayor Bill de Blasio recently announced the expansion of after-school programs to 85 percent of middle schools in New York City. Phipps Neighborhoods was selected as one of the providers, and we will be starting two new after-school programs this fall at Accion Academy and PS/MS 4.
“Phipps Neighborhoods applauds Mayor de Blasio’s prioritization and expansion of middle school programs, while leveraging existing space and community partners,” said Dianne Morales, Executive Director and CEO of Phipps Neighborhoods. “After-school programs during this critical developmental stage support youth in exploring their identity and interests in a safe, nurturing environment, while promoting the skills necessary for success in school and life.”
Our after-school programs provide children and teens with a safe, structured environment where they can do homework, participate in activities that enrich learning, and enjoy a fun, social experience outside of school hours. Our programs supplement the school curriculum and encourage creativity, confidence, teamwork, and communication skills.
