About the Provider

Description: NIA’s comprehensive after-school programs provide participants with new skills and enrichments that help them grow into well-rounded and confident adults. We offer a safe, encouraging, and stimulating environment where youth can receive academic support, explore new things, and cultivate character and a positive self image.

NIA employs a holistic approach to help each youth develop his or her capabilities by designing activities that integrate positive youth development principles and skill development that broaden student abilities and support their emotional, social, academic, creative, and physical development. Youth provide input and actively participate in the planning, design, and implementation of our programs, an experience that both enhances their skills and contributes to building programs that are effective and relevant to their needs and aspirations.

Our programs provide activities such as:

Academic Enrichment
Daily Homework Support
Arts Education – Like Music, Drama, Dance, and Visual Arts
Physical Education – Including sports, active games, and fitness
Character Education

NIA takes pride in its ability to deliver high quality, high impact programs that have a clearly defined purpose. Key design elements of all NIA after-school programs include a broad range of age appropriate activities, hands-on projects; a strong connection between the program, the day school, and home; high-quality and well-trained staff; and a structured and fun environment.

We value our solid partnerships with the schools we serve through numerous initiatives including New York City's Comprehensive After-School System of NYC (COMPASS) that helps young people build knowledge, skills and self-confidence and nurtures their aspirations through a variety of high quality enrichment opportunities. We believe in open communication and consider our schools as partners in the program planning process. We aim to provide each with specific support services that align with their school’s focus or that they may not be otherwise able to offer to their students. The types of partnerships NIA forms generates benefits for the children and youth we serve. One of the most successful aspects of NIA after-school initiatives has been the focus on leveraging community partners to provide experiences that youth might not otherwise be able to access through the school day.
