YOUTH PROGRAMS 

All Oasis youth development programs encourage respect, teamwork and tolerance for one another, and promote healthy and productive life-long habits.

MICHAEL WAGNER AFTER-SCHOOL ACADEMY

Our After-School Academy serves elementary-age children (ages 6–12).  We provide intensive academic support to ensure low-income children meet or exceed state standards in math and language arts. With a dedicated youth social worker, we also provide children with intensive and personalized psychosocial help.

Our staff includes certified teachers and tutors, providing a 1:4 ratio of adults to student.

FULL SERVICE COMMUNITY SCHOOL AT PUBLIC SCHOOL #2

Oasis is the lead agency helping transform Paterson Public School 2 into a full-service community school. Oasis has implemented a highly academic After-School Program at School 2, which is modeled after our highly-successful After-School Academy.

Oasis also provides the families of School 2 with a range of services, including psychosocial services, basic needs (meals, clothing), parent workshops (Abriendo Puertas) and family engagement nights. We work intensively with School 2 administration and staff members to provide for the children and their families.

To learn more about the services at School 2, contact Jessica Abreu, Full Service Community School Coordinator. (973) 881-8307 ext. 112 or by email at JessicaAbreu@oasisnj.org
