Masa's After-school Program operates on weekday evenings (Mondays-Thursdays) from 6 PM-8PM. At the program, students receive homework help, grow as readers, learn about social justice, and learn how to set goals and achieve them.
Masa's 2019-2020 After-School Program (MAP) will start on September 17, 2019 and run through May 28, 2020. Volunteers are admitted on a rolling basis.
