THE STORY:

Coastal.com - wrote -

A Place for Kids is an educational institution providing quality arts and cultural enrichment to support a child's opportunity to succeed in the future.

A Place for Kids (APFK) is a 39 year old nonprofit organization, which provides an after-school and summer program for a current capacity of 78 children age's five to eleven.  We serve families living or working in Lower Manhattan.  The children under our care are predominantly recent immigrants from low-income families.  The children's experiences are limited to within the immediate Chinatown community due to the fact that the parents work in menial jobs and for long hours.  The parents also have limited English verbal and literacy abilities, and lack the resources and the time to help their children academically, recreationally and with extracurricular activities.

We want to develop the minds and bodies of our children to their highest potential and to instill a sense of pride in their own roots and heritage while learning and appreciating the cultures and languages of other nationalities.  It is our goal to teach them to appreciate and respect all of the differences of our world and to recognize the similiarities.  Over the years, we have strived to implement a multi-cultural curriculum, provide enrichment projects, and integrate literacy activities which support the NYC Department of Education's Balanced Literacy Program.
