PBHA Mission Hill Afterschool Program

Purpose Statement

The Mission Hill After School Program was created in 1983 at the request of residents of the Mission Main and Alice Taylor housing developments in Roxbury. Serving 60 children (ages 5-14) divided into four age groups, MHASP volunteers strive to provide individual attention within a classroom setting, with both homework assistance and by working with the children on a creative curriculum designed by coordinators. Additionally, optional bi-weekly field trips to museums, cultural events, and recreational facilities enhance counselor-child friendships. Counselors work with the same 1 or 2 children for the entire semester to provide the most consistent and rewarding relationship. The time commitment is 3.5 hours a week during one afternoon Monday through Thursday. For more information, please contact Irina Vaynerman at mission.hill.after.school@gmail.com
