Welcome to the Greater Ridgewood Youth Council’s SONYC After-School Program at I.S. 25 and World Journalism Preparatory. We service children from 6th to 8th grade. As of this year 2021 our in person program operates Monday through Friday from 2:00pm to 5:00pm, following the school year calendar. 


Our goal is to foster a fun and safe environment for your children to learn and grow as well as expand on what they are learning in class on a daily basis. The students will have an opportunity to join a variety of activities including Creative Arts, Recreation which includes a variety of team sports, Healthy Living, Leadership Development/Community Service Projects, Literacy and STEM, which is a Common Core Aligned program that incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, and more. 


We are also offering remote activities in Google Classroom such as Creative Art, Anime, Magic the Gathering, Fitness, Homework Help, and more.  We also developed our own GRYC Discord Server for even more interactive activities such as E-Sports and Analog Games and more! Participants can feel more engaged all while promoting social and creative skills.
