Education Security. Amidst all the disruption caused by the global health crisis, growing protests for racial justice, as well as looming economic uncertainty, the Arts and Athletics and Re-Create organizations are focused on the crucial but often overlooked role of education in meeting the immediate needs of students (e.g. nutritional, health, and social-emotional, and childcare) as well as the longterm need to prepare children for participation in society, without forgetting the ongoing struggle to prepare society for them.

Our efforts to meet the educational and childcare needs of children and families over the last three months using video and online course tools has made clear that the internet will emerge as an indispensable tool to ensure that all children have consistent high quality instruction and opportunity to learn, no matter what external disturbance occurs.

Located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Re-Create is a community organization focused on teaching and learning across the life-span. In addition to supporting the Arts and Athletics afterschool enrichment programs at PS 9, Anderson / PS 334, and PS 452, we also offer fitness classes for adults and children, professional development for coaches and teachers, and writing and book clubs for a range of ages.
