Providing support, building community, and having Fun!


The After School Club is a safe, fun, and engaging space for refugee and immigrant youth of all ages living in Pittsburgh to receive homework help, tutoring, mentoring, and enrichment. This program is a collaborative effort between ARYSE, JFCS Immigrant and Refugee Services, and Duquesne University. The goal of the program is to guide youth in becoming engaged, confident, and celebrated members of the broader community.

The After School Club operates at two sites: one for youth in Kindergarten through 8th grade, the other for high-school age youth. In addition to providing 1-on-1 homework help to support students’ academic readiness and growth, the program combines sports, team-building activities, college and career readiness curricula, and creative expression workshops.
