Batey Urbano is delighted to present the After School Program for high school students in the Humboldt Park community and near-by neighborhoods. Our priority is to improve the academic performance of the youth and orientate them toward a better future. Batey Urbano provides a safe and educational space where youngsters can do their homework, with the help of tutors, and with access to computers and the internet. Students can also participate in cultural and artistic activities (painting, yoga, ping-pong, etc).
With the collaboration of the local restaurants Café Colao and Nelly’s, students are offered delicious food. Students are tutored in Math, English, Spanish, and writing, Monday to Friday (3pm-6pm), as well as Yoga instruction on Tuesdays at 4:15pm. Batey Urbano would like to welcome high school students to come study with us and to bring friends along to take advantage of this excellent program!
