After School

Goddard Riverside's After School Programs work with children and their families to build a literate, responsible, successful, community-oriented society. Both 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 children’s 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.

The After School Program at the Bernie Wohl Center provides programming from September through late May, serving kindergartners through fifth-graders with support for academic achievement through regular homework sessions and study-skills development. 

The program supports social-emotional growth through group activities and theme-based projects. These are some of the activities offered year-round:

  • art/crafts
  • chess
  • chorus
  • computer science
  • music
  • percussion
  • photography
  • sports
  • storytelling
  • yoga
