PBHA’s South Boston Afterschool offers an arts-based afterschool literacy program for young people from low-income families in South Boston. South Boston Afterschool utilizes an enrichment curriculum to promote the positive youth development of seventh and eighth graders who attend the James F. Condon K-8 School.

South Boston Afterschool empowers youth through an academic enrichment and arts-based literacy curriculum, emphasizing academic confidence, conflict resolution, interdependence, prevention of risk-taking behaviors, and respect for diversity. The program offers one-on-one support as well as group workshop activities for all afterschool program participants. At the conclusion of the semester, students and tutors attend a family fun night to build meaningful relationships between students, families, and volunteers and showcase the students’ work.

South Boston Afterschool works with the same students enrolled in South Boston Outreach Summer, a program of PBHA’s Summer Urban Program, to provide continuous, year-round programming.
