After School Center Tutoring

Help children from 1st-4th grade with homework and extra credit. Spend 45 minutes in the afternoon tutoring elementary school students fostering their academics.

Teen Tutoring

Help high school students with their academics. Tutoring is offered on-site Wednesdays and Fridays from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm, and Friday 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

Work Day

Work days happen on Saturday mornings from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Come and be a part of a group of volunteers to help improve New City Kids program spaces.

Professional Visit

Give a small group of high school teens an opportunity to learn from experienced professionals in their respective fields and tour your company. Teens get to hear the personal narratives of professionals and how they overcame similar obstacles, and ask questions.

Become a panelist

We host different panels for our teenagers to expand their horizons on different career paths and attend a concentrated session on one profession. Share your knowledge with our teenagers in your profession.
