We have openings for our enrichment coop for kids 9-12 in NYC, along with parents who are willing to commit to coming regularly. The idea is to get the kids working together, for us to learn from one another, and to create a community where the kids can feel safe and supported and learn together (with a good amount of hanging out to play afterward).
Kids would meet for about 2 hours, every other week on Wednesdays (1st and 3rd weeks of the month) between 12 and 2 ideally, but depending on the activities, it might be earlier or run a bit longer, and possibly stay to hang out and play after.
Each parent would be responsible for organizing one class, field trip, or activity every 3-6 months depending on how many parents are part of the group. There would be no cost to be part of the coop, but we would split the cost of trips, classes, and activities. We will attempt to keep all of the activities at low cost, and commitment is very important to make the group work.
It is not a drop-off group. The community is as much for the parents as it is for the kids. Younger or older siblings are welcome to hang out with parents while the coop meets.
If you are seriously interested in being part of the group, please fill out the form below. We will meet sometime during the week of Sept 11-17 to plan details, answer questions, etc. Our first meeting will likely be Sept 20th, 2023
