BR Teen Club, for Bais Rivkah’s 6-8 graders has begun with much enthusiasm.
The Teen Club is an after school program dedicated to helping the youth in our community. The program provides nourishing food, homework support, and stimulating recreational clubs and workshops. Because it is government funded, all the participants enjoy the program absolutely free.
A project of Mayor De Blasio’s new after school initiative, Bais Rivkah Teen Club receives funds and clear directives that were crafted to provide quality, top of the line, after school programs that cater to the needs of our community. The NYC Department of Youth and Community Development/SONYC program operates through the Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island under the auspices of Rabbi Moshe Wiener and After School Programs’ Coordinator, Chanie Moskowitz.
At BR Teen Club, students are greeted by the warm staff that works diligently to provide the girls with a positive environment. “I love the program because it provides a safe and supervised environment for me to be with friends,” one Teen Club member said.
A light dinner is served, and then students begin their homework assignments and study with the assistance of dedicated teachers providing them with much needed academic support. Students then participate in a choice of high quality activities that promote creativity, self-esteem, and teach life skills. Some of the activities include: crafts, cake decorating, music, drama, art, Photoshop, dance, sports, mad science, zumba and many more clubs.
Parents praised the teen club for what it provides for the students. “My daughter enjoys the warm, relaxed environment after a full day of school. I appreciate that she gets her homework done. As a full time, working mother, I know that my daughter has a wonderful place to be after school, and I don’t have the stress of finding the time to complete her homework with her,” one parent said.
The program rewards the students for their efforts with amazing incentives. Raffles, treats, and fantastic trips are offered to the girls that are committed to the program.
BR Teen Club is proud to be there for our community, for our children- helping our youth reach their potential.
