Youth & Education

St. Nicks Alliance Youth & Education serves more than 3,000 young people from UPK through high school each year with a seamless continuum of comprehensive services that target the developmental needs of youth as they grow.

We seek to positively influence school attendance and attachment, enthusiasm for learning, social-emotional skills, and academic and employment self-efficacy. By building steady progress in these areas, we equip young people to graduate from high school and acquire the essential skills for post-secondary success.

After School Sites

St. Nicks Alliance operates free after-school centers and summer camps enjoyed by nearly 1900 elementary and middle school students each year. At after-school centers and summer camps, children participate in a unique experience that combines high-quality youth services with intensive literacy activities.
