Youth Development


PageLines- Summerdance.jpg

IMANI HOUSE, Inc. has provided youth development services for Brooklyn communities since 1997. Our first youth project was a Summer Computer Day Camp for ten children which received support from Senator Velmanette Montgomery. Citibank also supported the program in the form of  computer donations which we used to train our students.

Since then our program has grown into a year-round service , providing after-school and summer programming and catering to over 140 elementary aged children. With a focus on assisting our children socially, emotionally, physically and academically, the project serves children in grades Pre-K – 5th and is housed in P.S./M.S. 282 in Parkslope.  During the school year the program operates from 2:45 pm-5:45pm and during 13 school closing holidays we  are open from 8am- 5:45 pm. Summer programs run from 8am- 5:45pm as well, 5 days a week for 8 weeks.

To meet our goals of assisting children socially, emotionally, physically and academically we offer a wide variety of activities including tutoring, homework assistance, introductory STEM, field trips (during the summer and school closing holidays), karate, archery, several dance disciplines, drama, creative writing arts and crafts, and much more. All of our staff are experienced working with children and pass several in-house and city background/reference and health checks. Imani House’s Afterschool Program is licensed and insured, Better Business Bureau accredited, and an America’s Promise Place.
