School Based and NYCHA Housing Community Centers (Beacons and  Cornerstones)

Our Beacon and Cornerstone programs in Washington Heights (Northern Manhattan) and in Highbridge (West Bronx) are community centers that transform local schools or NYCHA housing facilities into thriving neighborhood centers after school and in the summer months. These programs provide a safe, supervised place for youth to go for recreation, cultural activities, homework help, tutoring, and counseling. Many also offer programs for parents, siblings or the whole community including such things as English language classes, recreation or computer training.
