Five After School Opportunities on Staten Island

The NY Center provides after school programming at Public School 13, McKee High School, Port Richmond High School, New Beginnings, and Curtis High School. These after-school centers are open to all students. Our outreach and recruitment focuses on students who are poor performers, special needs students, non–completers, and students from immigrant families.

During 2005-2006 school year, these programs provided services to more than 1000 children and at-risk youth.

Each center provides academic support and enrichment, positive youth development, adult support and guidance, literacy educational development for families, and information to promote physical health and well being.

In 2005, the New York State Education Department chose the New York Center to implement 21st Century Community Learning Centers at three sites.
Curtis High School Hours of Operation: Monday – Friday 2:45 -5:15PM 105 Hamilton Avenue Staten Island, NY 10301

Our after school program at Port Richmond High School focuses on improving attendance and academic performance.

The NY Center has over 35 years of experience working with Staten Island’s youth through after-school, peer mediation, and alternative high school programs. We offer programming firmly grounded in research-based youth development principals.
