PowerUP! After-School is a comprehensive, 5-day/week after-school program that focuses on Academic Enrichment; Health, Fitness, and Nutrition; Fine Arts; Social and Emotional Wellness; Garden Greenhouse; and STEM.
The ultimate goal of NMCYF's PowerUP! program is to provide safe and nurturing environments for students after school. The program offers tutoring and homework help as well as opportunities for hands-on activities like cooking, gardening, and sports. PowerUP! is also available on snow days, teacher-in-service days, etc.
PowerUP! provides a comprehensive summer program for full days for six weeks in July and August. Students participate in a variety of activities each day including academic enrichment, robotics, swimming (2 days per week at the city water park), gardening in an onsite raised garden and greenhouse, cooking, social/emotional development activities, and weekly field trips.
In 2022, PowerUP! added a before-school program from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 pm. for students that need before-school enrichment.
