After-School Programs (2015-2016)
Moravia is currently RYP’s largest site, with 55 pre-K through 5th grade students attending this location to receive snacks, homework help, extra English lessons, and community arts integration. RYP students are given safe transportation home each day and go on 1-2 cultural field trips during the semester. The majority of the students at this site come from Bhutan, Iraq, Eritrea, and DR Congo.
Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 3:30-5:45 p.m.
RYP’s after-school program at Patterson brings together refugee high school students from across the city of Baltimore. Youth work with volunteer tutors to complete homework assignments, finish school projects, or practice English. In 2014, students also had the option of attending a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and Nursing program. This site serves Bhutanese, Iraqi, Eritrean, and Congolese students who are in the 9th to 12th grades.
Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 3:35-5:15 p.m.
RYP recently started after-school programming in the Catonsville area to support the academic and social development of students from Myanmar. In the past six years, more than 1,400 refugees from Myanmar have been resettled in Baltimore County, many of whom are youth from the Chin ethnic minority. RYP provides snacks, tutoring support, recreation opportunities, field trips and community arts lessons to middle and high school students at this site.
Mondays and Thursdays, 3:45-5:45 p.m.
