These programs support academic success in their daily activities, and offer circulating libraries to encourage reading. They also refer children to our one-one-one tutoring program at the Star Learning Center. These affordable programs are licensed by the New York City Department of Health.

The After School Program at Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center provides a safe, nurturing and educational environment. The program is designed to cultivate appreciation of the arts, build self-esteem, and broaden the childrenÍs outlook on the world – and, in turn, on their own potential. The program runs from September though mid-June and serves kindergartners through sixth-graders.

Activities offered include:

  • science and math discovery
  • reading and writing enrichment
  • homework help
  • soccer
  • arts
  • computer room

To enrich its offerings, the program partners with neighboring organizations including Fordham Law School, Lincoln Center Education, and Writopia.
