AFTERSCHOOL @ P.S. 140 Youth Development Program
At the Educational Alliance, we strive to provide students with the best programs possible. We encourage children to be creative, work on their talents, and build self-confidence. In addition to homework help, we promote the Talent Development of every child through fun and educational activities such as:
Unplanned Twin Day!
Volunteer Project Events
Valentine's Day cookie decorating
Fun Ice Skating Trips!
Visits to Central Park Zoo
LIGHTS ON! Afterschool Projects
Last year our students and parents worked hard to make sure city council and the mayor knew exactly how much afterschool programs mattered to them:
We are thoroughly indebted to Campaign for Children for their tremendous support in the organization and continuing execution of our advocacy campaign.
We are still working hard to make sure our programs continue to get funding. Afterschool and day care for NYC students is important!
Please visit Campaign for Children at http://www.campaignforchildrennyc.com/ to see how you can help!

Going Green: Teaching Kids About Protecting the Environment
Thanks to a Boys & Girls Club Energy Star Grant, our students at P.S. 140 have been learning about saving energy and why going green is important for today and our future. Activities include performing in skits and creating pamphlets about why this is important. To see our own students perform the skits they created click here- 4th Grade Energy Star Skit

Our Wait List Is Growing - How You Can Help
If our After School programs didn't exist, many local youth would have no options when school lets out. But for every kid we help, there's another on a waiting list that we can't accommodate. Learn how you can help us serve more local children and teens. [back to top]
