School is in full swing, and we’re delighted to be back with our after school kids. To celebrate the fun we’ve had in years past and get excited for all the good Goodwill after school times to come, we’ve put together this little photo slideshow from our after school programs:
In general, Goodwill’s after school programs take place at select New York City Beacons. Beacons are school-based community centers serving children, youth, and adults. There are currently 80 Beacons located throughout New York City, five of which are operated by the Youth Services Division of Goodwill Industries, and all of which operate in the afternoons and evenings, on weekends, during school holidays, vacation periods, and during the summer.
Typical activities for youth include: literacy activities; tutoring; high school/college prep; math clubs; photography; basketball; chess; and martial arts. Typical activities for adults include ESL classes; GED preparation; and computer classes.
To help keep these programs alive, keep shopping, donating and supporting Goodwill. All your contributions, online donations included, make a difference. Thank you and Happy New School (and After School) Year!
