Boys of Color in Afterschool: Protective Practices Institute

With generous support from The Robert Bowne Foundation, this program will connect research to practice, building from the first session of PASE’s Research Series: Relational Engagement Needs among Black and Latino Boys, led by Dr. Edward Fergus-Arcia, Assistant Professor in Educational Leadership and Policy, Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development at New York University

In collaboration with Dr. Edward Fergus-Arcia of New York University, PASE will convene selected afterschool program sites to:

  1. increase their protective practices in afterschool programs,
  2. document the challenges and opportunities they face in supporting boys of color and other vulnerable youth;
  3. develop a network of responsive organizations serving boys of color; and,
  4. document our learnings in order to help other community-based organizations do this work effectively.

Participating afterschool programs include:

  1. Bronx Arts Ensemble, Inc., International Community High School
  2. CAMBA, Inc., SONYC at IS 240/ Andries Hudde JHS
  3. East Harlem Tutorial Program, Elementary Program
  4. Global Kids Inc., Bronx Studio School for Writers and Artists
