Work with Kids Creative After-School Programs
New York’s most unique after school leads children through a creative adventure,
using acting and music to build a collaborative community.
Kids Creative is a New York City nonprofit organization that offers arts-based, peace education programs for Pre-K to middle-school age students through after-school programs, workshops and summer camps.
Parents and teachers are amazed by the energy, enthusiasm and confidence we generate in their children as we equip them with the skills to be creative and give them the tools to become peace builders. We educate the whole child and our afterschool programs offers classes in the Arts, sports, yoga, homework help, peace and culture and more. All activities are linked by a common peace-building thread which includes mottos such as "all ideas are good" and anti-bullying rules, including ‘no teasing or fake teasing, no fighting or fake fighting.’ Students share ideas, collaborate with others and perform a show that is completely from their imagination each semester.
