JCCGCI’s Advantage Afterschool program provides afterschool learning and enrichment activities for high-risk, low-income, and/or immigrant middle school and high school students in Queens. The program provides a safe, educational, enriching, and enjoyable atmosphere for participating students during the school year, and is focused on improved school performance.
The program runs for three hours each day, five days per school week. We currently serve 180 students per year.
Using the fundamental strengths of each organization that JCCGCI collaborates with, the program builds on a shared sense of responsibility for and advocacy on behalf of immigrant children and other resident youth.
JCCGCI thanks the New York State Office of Children and Family Services for funding our Supplemental Education/Student Support program.
