School Age Program Details
High–quality before- and after-school enrichment programs in 12 St. Louis City public elementary schools and one elementary school in the Riverview Gardens School District.
- Programs include fun, interactive, and creative activities in a supportive and safe environment.
- Evidence-based curriculum reinforces what is learned in the classroom, particularly in the areas of math, literacy, health and fitness.
- High quality enrichment activities expose our children to cultural arts and encourage creative expression (e.g., cooking classes led by Operation Food Search, art classes led by Artists-In-Residence, dance classes led by COCA, etc.).
- Conscious Discipline, a research-based behavior management model empowers staff to use everyday conflicts to teach children important life skills and encourage pro-social behaviors.
- A hot meal is provided every day.
- Summer day camp is also available at various United Church of Christ partner sites throughout St. Louis.

The Neighborhood Houses’ School Age Services program is a member of the After School for All Partnership (A.S.A.P.), which is improving access to, and the quality of, after school programs across the St. Louis region. Learn more at www.stlasap.org
An estimated 269,000 school-age youth in the St. Louis City area do not have access to before or after school programs. Significantly, the city’s crime has stayed stagnant for several years and children unsupervised or out in the community before or after school hours are in danger of physical harm and dangerous crime affiliations. In fact, adolescents left unsupervised for 11 or more hours per week are at twice the risk of substance abuse, sexual behaviors and gang activity in their community. If we can keep children engaged in safe, productive, enriching activities during the critical hours of 3-6pm, we can make a significant impact on the children and families we serve.
Inspiring Almirah's Magnificent Potential
Anthropologist. Singer. Food Taster. Hair Designer. Photographer. Child Care Worker. Teacher. These are just the interests that Almirah has today – at 12. This young woman isn’t just thinking about making a difference – she’s already started. You can see it in how she interacts with her peers and with adults. She’s finding her own magnificent potential – and she’s pulling great things out of everyone she meets.Neighborhood Houses’ programs give Almirah the chance to learn, explore, and dream to become whatever she wants. We provide a safe and caring environment where she can prepare for her future.Don’t be surprised if Almirah becomes an anthropologist, singer, food taster, hair designer, photographer, child care worker, teacher – and so much more.
Inspiring Mauriea’s Magnificent Potential
First things first with Mauriea – don’t get her name wrong. This young woman is quite proud that she has a unique name because it fits her personality, which is also unlike most others. Mauriea is a typical 12-year old in so many ways though – as anxious about what the next year at school holds as she is about moving forward with her career in fashion.
And Neighborhood Houses’ programs are giving Mauriea the chance to shine and explore as she realizes her magnificent potential. Support from staff and encouragement from her friends is helping make this young woman a shining star.
Mauriea is infectious – from her smile and bubbly voice to her ability to engage in conversations about topics that are well beyond her years. She may want to design fashionable baby outfits but rest assured, she’ll warm everyone’s hearts along the way.
Inspiring Tyce’s Magnificent Potential
On the outside, he looks like any other six year-old. Oh, but on the inside, he’s full of curiosity and ambition. Tyce is as adept at pulling his weight, and more, in a friendly tug-of-war contest, serving up winning points in volleyball or creating an intricate piece of craft jewelry.But without access to programs from Neighborhood Houses, Tyce's story might be very different.
After seven weeks of summer camp, his smile reflects a young boy that’s on the path to his magnificent potential – with a few stops for his new favorite food, s’mores, along the way.
