Mission Statement

Interstages provides opportunities for early adolescents in low-income neighborhoods to discover talents, develop and strengthen skills, and heighten self-awareness, setting the stage for a successful transition into young adulthood.

Description

Interstages is an emerging nonprofit afterschool program that arose from the concerns of two DCPS teachers, Noel Tieszen and Herb Scott, about the supports and skills their students needed in order to achieve greater success in school and in life. Their answer: structured afterschool activities, individualized academic support, and opportunities for creative expression.

Afterschool programs provide more than a safe-environment for kids to hang out with peers. For early adolescent youth, these programs play a critical role in their transition to young adulthood. At Interstages, our belief that success is in the experience forms the very core of our program. Our uniquely integrated program provides a relaxed and engaging environment where students can feel comfortable to express themselves and know that their voices are heard. As they are given the opportunity to experience success through everyday achievements, our students learn to become more confident in their abilities and in themselves.
