ECS Out of School Time

The ECS Out of School Time (OST) Program provides after-school and summer camp services to elementary and middle school students in the diverse Feltonville neighborhood of Philadelphia. Educational enrichment is a major priority, as is providing a safe, constructive environment in the crucial time when school is out and many parents are still at work.

ECS OST is a licensed child care program based in public school facilities. Current initiatives include incorporating the Thinking for Action, a cognitive behavioral practice already developed by the ECS Seeing Youth Succeed program. Major funding through the federal 21st Century Community Learning Centers initiative will also enable the delivery of a new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) curriculum.
