USES’ club48 (formerly the After School program) provides high-quality services with curricula that support school success and promote the social, cognitive, and emotional development of the students.

We have 52 slots in our licensed after school care program, serving children ages 5-12 years old each year. During the school days, the program operates from 2:30pm to 6:00pm. During school vacation days and during the summer, the program operates from 8:00am to 6:00pm.

Group leaders promote school success through a wide range of activities including arts enrichment, academic support, recreation, homework time, group team building activities, and field trips.

Activities

Academic support and homework assistance are key components of USES’ licensed After School Program, which weaves together social, recreational & cultural opportunities, and technology. Group Leaders assist with homework for a portion of every┬áday.

Field trips include a variety of fun, educational, and recreational activities such as visits to local colleges, museums, historical monuments, bowling, roller skating, etc.

During the summer, students participate in activities designed to prevent academic decline from occurring during the summer months. The program promotes academic success by structuring curriculum around fun activities which support the MA Frameworks for Math and English Language Arts.

Our program understands the need for real parent involvement. We offer bi-monthly parent meetings, parent/group leader conferences, and workshops led by outside specialists to help keep parents informed and connected to our program and their child’s education.

We collect student report cards and identify subjects in which they might benefit from extra help in order to avoid falling behind. Working with the teachers, parents, and students, we develop a plan to help each student succeed in school.

Mission: To build a strong community by improving the education, health, safety and economic security of low-income individuals and families in Boston's historic South End/Lower Roxbury and to serve as a national model of successful neighborhood engagement.
