- Program Information
Propel’s award-winning Afterschool Program, facilitated by Propel staff, allows students to have continuity from the school day. We utilize an ever-growing partner network to provide students with academic and enrichment opportunities during the extended day.
“The benefits of afterschool programs are clear. They support working families by ensuring that children are safe and productive when the school day ends. Quality afterschool programs make communities stronger by involving students, parents, business leaders and volunteers. Propel is proud to be an integral part of the afterschool lives of our students.”
–Rosemary Anderson, Director of Propel Afterschool Programs
At no cost to families, Propel’s Afterschool Program aims to improve students’ academic achievement, encourage healthy lifelong skills, provide resources and build an ongoing platform for students and families.
This year, the Propel Northside Afterschool Program is a MAGIC site. This means that we provide to our students academic support, opportunities in the arts and sciences, and lessons on healthy lifelong habits and skills. One of our primary focuses is on making connections among families, schools, and communities. We have established strong partnerships with various organizations in the Pittsburgh area to give our students as much enrichment as possible.
All students receive a snack and participate in a homework hour before heading off to their respective activities. Some of the weekly activities offered through our afterschool program include: Hip-hop dance, basketball, various arts and crafts, physical education, science, health and wellness groups for middle school, and STEM Stars through Carnegie Science Center.
