TCCS, in collaboration with Teachers College and Roads to Success (RTS) offers several after-school program options for elementary students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. The goal of the TCCS after-school program is to provide a safe, productive, and creative environment to enhance student learning, extend the curriculum, and promote areas of learning and self-expression. Three themes permeate the program: wellness/physical activity, STEM, and arts.

  • TC Clubs start on Monday September 16, 2019 and run through Friday May 8, 2020.

  • Roads To Success starts on Monday September 9th, 2019 and runs through Friday June 19th, 2020.

Students may participate in either or both of these programs, which will be administered separately and run in parallel to one another. Please do not hesitate to contact Katy Maiolatesi at communityschool@tc.columbia.edu if you have questions regarding TC Clubs. Questions regarding the Roads to Success program should be directed to Kamla Hall, TCCS Site Director at: tccs@roadstosuccess.org.

Roads to Success

Program Description

Roads to Success operates an after-school program that helps young people gain the skills to be positive members of their communities and identify future potential pathways. Each day after school is very active at RTS, where every child will participate in:

  • Enrichment activities (visual or performing arts, sports and team-building, science, service learning, and more);

  • Academic skill support (homework help, reading activities, or academic games);

  • Community circles (cheers, group games, appreciation ceremonies, etc.);

  • Snack or meal

These activities will culminate in events and showcases where families can come and celebrate their children’s milestones and accomplishments together.
