Our after-school program is offered by Manhattan Youth After-School Program housed within the Julia Richman Educational Complex, providing a variety of elementary school enrichment courses as well as a FREE middle school program, 6th through 8th grades.

In Manhattan Youth’s After-School Program, your child will participate in project-based activities, homework assignments, and get physical exercise every day. Manhattan Youth works closely with parents, teachers and school administrators to provide the sports, arts and enrichment activities necessary to give your child a well-rounded education.

The program is open every day (including half days) from school dismissal until 5:50pm. Parents can customize their after-school schedules, from one day to five days per week, one class to two classes per day, in any configuration. Manhattan Youth also runs full-day camps during summer vacation and school holidays (separate registration required).


At the end of the school day, classroom teachers dismiss all students registered for our program directly to our staff, who greet students with a healthy snack and a smile. Students eat and socialize with friends, decompressing from the school day and gearing up for after-school.


We provide a wide variety of sports, arts, and enrichment activities for every age group. The classes that you select when enrolling your child in the program are taught by certified teachers, teaching artists and activity specialists.


Before and after classes, students choose from a list of structured and free play activities, led by our counselors. Choice Time activities include: Study Hall, Gym Sports, Yard Play, Indoor Games, Arts & Crafts, and more. You may choose to replace

daily Choice Time with an additional class as an “add-on.”


You can “add-on” a second class to your child’s schedule! After-School includes one Class and one Choice Time activity per day. You may choose to replace daily Choice Time

with an additional class as an “add-on.” Tuition is based on your child’s total

number of classes per week.
