NIA’s comprehensive after-school programs provide participants with new skills and enrichments that help them grow into well-rounded and confident adults. NIA is working together with schools to provide students with 35% more learning time, along with helping youth to develop the social intelligence and leadership skills needed to prepare them for their future careers.
Expanding the school day by providing programs that include extra time for help with homework, performing and visual arts, physical education, and more allows us to close the opportunity gap that many students face. Creating a seamless day between normal school hours and our after-school programs creates gains academically, enhances learning, and develops social and emotional growth in our participants.
NIA employs a holistic approach to help each youth develop their 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. NIA provides comprehensive in-school, ExpandEd day, and after-school services that offer the opportunity to participate in enrichment through visual and performing arts, science, literacy, sports, fitness, leadership, and community building activities.

High quality, high impact
NIA takes pride in its ability to deliver high quality, high impact programs that have a clearly defined purpose. Key elements of all NIA after-school programs include a range of age appropriate activities, and hands-on projects. NIA's well-trained staff makes sure that there's a strong connection between the program, the day school, and home in a fun and structured 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. Through open communication, we aim to provide each of our partners 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.
