after school

“I learned to teach content and standards through activities-based lessons, to enhance curriculum with materials and objects, and to give students the opportunity to learn by doing.” -Teacher from PS 52, Queens

The Salvadori Center offers a variety of programs outside traditional school hours. Our most popular after school programs deliver 12 weeks of hands-on, project-based learning. Each 90 minute session uses the built environment – bridges, skyscrapers, landmarks, skate parks, and more – to bring math and science to life. Salvadori also provides a variety of family programs at cultural institutions throughout the City. Join our mailing list to receive news and updates.
