Connect After School

Connect After School
The Connect After School program will run throughout the academic school year, matching the Cohoes School District Calendar. When school is open, Connect After School will be too!

While maintaining a 6:1 student to volunteer supervisor ratio, students will have a safe space to be between the hours of 3pm-5pm Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays!

Students will be able to work on homework, hang out with friends, play video games, and explore our incredible STEAM lab, including a state of the art music studio where they can create their own music!

 The S.T.E.A.M acronym stands for science, technology, engineering, arts and math. The completed lab will be an innovative space where youth can explore and develop skills for a diverse set of activities. These skills will be necessary to widen their potential and to keep them competitive in a rapidly evolving education and job market. The Connect S.T.E.A.M. Lab currently includes a Black Box Theater and Music Studio.

Our second phase of construction on the S.T.E.A.M. lab includes two projects. The first is the technology hub- a space to learn coding, website building, graphic design, and more. We are also looking to start our own First Lego League team using this space. The second project will be "Stage 49"- a media creation space with fully equipped cameras, gear, and a green screen so community members can learn how to make their own movies.
