Henry Street Settlement ASP

Preschool in New York, NY 10002

After-school programming offered through Henry Street’s Youth Services Division serves participants in a network of Lower East Side schools (P.S. 110, P.S. 134, P.S. 20 and United Neighborhood Middle School) and two community centers: The Helen Hall Youth Center, located at 301 Henry Street, and Boys and Girls Republic, located at Sixth Street and Avenue D.

While each location houses a site-specific program design, they operate holistically as part of the Henry Street Settlement after-school campus, focused on encouraging positive social interactions, healthy attitudes and decision-making skills, tolerance, appreciation of differences and increased community involvement. All sites operate on a three-cycle calendar with themes for each cycle integrated through all activities: Fall: “All About Me;” Winter: “All About Us;” and Spring: “All About Our Community.”

These sites offer an array of quality-driven educational, enrichment and recreational activities, and also strive to enhance academic success through parent programs and referrals to other supportive services. We reinforce family relationships and the social values of self-confidence, self-expression, positive peer relationships, responsible behavior and a social commitment to contribute to one’s community.

Each site has a full-time Coordinator and a staff of Group Leaders and Group Aides, including community members, parents, school aides and college students. Group Leaders must have college credits in education, and Group Aides are high school students who are trained by our own Youth Employment Program. Artists, specialists and volunteers present diverse offerings, including video production, theater, dance, leadership, math clubs, fashion design, rugby, soccer and basketball.
