Manhattan Youth is proud to provide a comprehensive, well-balanced after-school program at PPAS. We run the school's sports teams, produce the school performances, and fill every afternoon with activity choices that appeal to the different interest of each student. 

All activities are free to participants thanks to funding from the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD). To learn more about New York City's investment in middle school youth and other family programs, please click here
