The C.A.F.E. (Cafeteria Alternative For Everyone) has been a great success and is set to restart soon. We did a six week program three days a week at the old guidance space and small gym in the Spring. We had these spaces open for the lunch blocks and provided areas where kids could hang out with friends, listen to or play music, games, get help with homework or just relax.
If school is closed, there is a good chance we are open, so please email us – newpaltzyp@gmail.com or text me (Jim 845-325-2593), if you are unsure.
We Won!!
The NPYP won “Best Youth Program in the Hudson Valley” in Hudson Valley Magazine for 2018.
Tutoring!!! We now tutor in up to 70 classes each day at the middle school. The largest such tutoring program in New York State!! We also tutor at the youth center after school! If you need help, we got it!!
Thanks To John Krasinski ‘s (remember Jim from “The Office”) movie (A Quiet Place), filming in New Paltz for contributing almost $2000 to our Van Fund.
