Katz JCC announces new after school program for middle school-aged kids

This fall, the Katz JCC will offer a new addition to their current after school program, Just4Kids.

J Crew, designed specifically for students entering sixth through eighth grade, is a program that will offer community service and leadership opportunities in addition to enriching activities in a safe after school environment.

According to Kenny Einhorn, JCC Children and Family Director, the older group will enjoy many of the same activities as their younger peers such as daily homework help, science and technology, cooking, sports and swimming, but they will have more autonomy with the opportunity to choose their activities and decide what community service and leadership projects interest them.

“We are happy to provide to fill the need in our community that parents have asked for,” Einhorn said. “Our goal is to make this rewarding for the students while at the same time giving parents peace of mind knowing their kids are safe and supervised.”

In addition to J Crew, the JCC also offers Just4Kids for children in grades kindergarten through five. Both programs offer a flexible schedule and transportation options from Cherry Hill, Voorhees and Marlton schools, and Kellman Brown Academy.
