Structured like clubs, our model offers young people a choice in how they spend their time; provides rigorous instruction in STEM fields, sports and arts; and requires youth leadership through service. The City itself becomes a classroom through trips and opportunities for instruction beyond a traditional learning setting. Our programs operate on a three season model – fall, winter and spring – with typical programs running for three hours each day, five days per week. Each season concludes with culminating events; showcases for the artistic, athletic or academic skills students have learned in their time with SASF.
Students in SASF Champions Club programs are provided these opportunities at no cost to them or their families, and are located in schools around the five boroughs and in Westchester County. We encourage strong parent involvement in all of our programs. We provide each student with a variety of leadership, arts, sports and academic enrichment activities, built around SASF’s curricula in each area that are specifically designed to improve their physical and intellectual well-being.
