Children growing up in the city of Poughkeepsie are faced with a variety of cultural deficiencies, as they are surrounded by violence, drugs, gangs, and other illegal activities. The most common, and possibly most harmful of all is a lack of adult supervision. This type of unstable upbringing can lead to a steep decline in self-esteem, as well as serious behavioral problems in young people. When children do not receive the love, support, and discipline of a loving mentor, their emotional and psychological development suffers greatly.
Our after school service exists to give the children in our community a safe place to go after school. Set-4-Success is free for children so that no one is turned away based on their financial stability. During our time together we provide homework help, tutoring, games, free time in our game room and gymnasium, bible study, and a snack. We currently serve children from the ages of 7-14 and are in the process of developing programs for older teens.
Set-4-Success operates Mon-Fri from 2:30-5:00
*Special hours take place on days that school is not in session.
Provide a FREE after school setting for kids where they can get
HELP with homework and socialize with peers
