21st Century Community Learning Centers students took to the stage at P.S. 62 to show what they love about after-school programs. This was organized by students, afterschool staff, and educators to draw attention to why programs such as ASPIRA play an important role in the lives of children, families and communities.
ASPIRA staff members at J.H.S 131 couldn't take our SONYC students to a carnival due to the ongoing pandemic so they brought the carnival to them. ASPIRA staff showed innovative creativity and adaptation to make this event a safe haven and a place of exploration for our youth.
Our BEACON students at M.S. 343 & M.S. 224 celebrated with recording artist Ayanna Irish and a live band, sending a powerful message that more youth need quality afterschool programs. These are just some of the high-quality and engaging activities that ASPIRA programs provide every day allowing our young people to explore interests and discover new skills.
