ASP (After School Program)

ASP (After School Program for children ages 8-12) operates 5-days-a-week from 3:00-6:30pm, with extended hours to 7:30pm once a week for the Mentoring Program (starting in February). A typical afternoon begins with a healthy meal and time for children to unwind before starting their homework.
The day ends with enrichment activities such as multi-media arts, karate, Afro-Caribbean drumming, nutrition &amp cooking. Older members, aged 11 to 13, participate in programs designed to aid in their transition into our After School Program for Teens. These programs include Junior Gaia, a subsection of our Environmental Program for middle school-aged children; Lit Media Program which uses pop culture to explore Pan-African and Latinx issues; and our young brothers and young sisters group which are an introduction to our Rites of Passage Program.

“I believe so deeply in the life-saving work that The Brotherhood/Sister Sol is dedicated to: values and skills building that empower young people and keep them on course; helping young people to see and develop the extraordinary within themselves; ensuring their safe passage to adulthood. It is surely one of the most incredible organizations in the nation. Their work is catalytic! Their leadership, their services and outcomes are without peer. Simply put, The Brotherhood/Sister Sol does the work that few others will or even know how to do…. They have answered the call to repair the village, to secure the children. It’s our responsibility to ensure they have all they need to do God’s work.” Susan L. Taylor
