PAL and New World Prep Charter School have partnered together to bring a SONYC after school program to middle school children in the Port Richmond area. This program services 90+ students ranging from 6th grade to 8th grade throughout the year with afterschool, and summer programming.
PRC is a great believer in Youth Voice, and not only welcomes all participants to make their own after school schedule by selecting which clubs they would like to take part in, but we take suggestions and surveys yearlong to make sure the clubs offered are those that our participants are most interested in. In just the last year, PRC has offered Street Hockey, Basketball, Flag Football, Digital Art, Graphic art, arts and crafts, cooking, spoken word, chorus, Media, science, dance, step, Girls and boys leadership clubs, and many more.
In addition to our commitment to youth voice and choice, we are invested in taking an active part in community betterment, doing routine community clean ups, food drives and clothing drives during the holidays. We also host a number of events open to the community, such as our annual Haunted House, which we use to fundraise for our annual Pot Luck thanksgiving celebration.
PRC continues its commitment to participants who have aged out of the SONYC programming by offering volunteer opportunities and internships to current high schoolers, as well as offering Teen programming ages 14-19, 3 days a week on site. We at PRC believe our PAL family is a lifelong relationship that we continue to foster and support.
This is a part time center.
