Community Counseling & Mediation For Youth Initiative (CCM-FYI) is MS 915’s after school partner. CCM-FYI offers broad after school programming at no cost, thanks to grant funding from NYC’s Department of Youth and Community Development. CCM’s onsite counselors and activity specialists provide a wide array of activities, including art, dance, music, photography, sports, creative writing, fashion, and more.
How does MS 915’s After School Program work?
CCM-FYI offers traditional after school programming every day starting right after school until 6:00pm. Registration opens in the summer before school begins and then occurs on an on-going basis throughout the school year as space permits.
New this year, CCM-FYI also offers and oversees Enrichment Club sessions that take place several times per year and generally run for about 10 weeks, depending on the calendar; a few clubs require longer commitments. Students and families must register for clubs for each session—in other words, enrollment in the clubs does not generally carry over from session to session. These include band programs overseen by teaching artists from the Brooklyn Music School and dance programs with Brooklyn Ballet, as well as a variety of MS 915 teacher-led clubs. Student support groups including our Genders & Sexualities Alliance will also be integrated into CCM’s programming.
Can my child do both traditional programming and Enrichment Clubs?
Yes! Your child can sign up for both.
Can my child do only Enrichment Clubs?
Yes, but you must still complete CCM-FYI’s enrollment form. The only limitation is that students may not leave school and then return for a club that begins later in the afternoon. Students in those clubs (for example, basketball team) would stay at school for snack and homework help, tutoring, or other activities until their scheduled club.
How do I apply for MS 915’s After School Program?
You can complete CCM-FYI’s After School Program Enrollment 2019-20 Application and CCM Media Release forms and return it to CCM-FYI’s office at MS 915. If you have any questions, email email@example.com.
How do I register for Enrichment Clubs?
Enrichment Club registration is done online. An online registration form will be available on this page when registration is open, and students participating in CCM programming will have an opportunity to fill out the online form during after school. If your child is not currently participating in after school or you do not have access to a computer or other device that allows you to register online, please reach out to CCM-FYI’s onsite program director, Ms. Gigi, at MS 915 to select preferred clubs.
Do I have to fill out the CCM-FYI application if my child will only attend an Enrichment Club?
Yes! Every student who is planning to attend MS 915’s After School Program must register with CCM-FYI even if they will not join full time traditional after school programming.
What can I expect from Homework Help during after school?
CCM provides a quiet environment in which students can complete their homework. If a student is having trouble understanding their assignment they can ask the teacher for assistance. Family members should check over homework at home to make sure it is complete and correct. If you would like extra assistance for homework help, please register your child for tutoring.
Does the After School Program offer tutoring?
Yes! MS 915 teachers offer tutoring in various subjects through CCM-FYI’s program. Tutoring in ELA, science and math is available after school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays respectively.
