FDC provides positive social and academic learning opportunities to promote independence, self-confidence, creativity, and civic awareness among youth in the Flatbush community.
FDC programs bridge daytime learning with the afterschool environment, working with staff, parents, students, school and community partners to ensure our youth access opportunity and realize their dreams. Our programs encourage positive interactions between educators and students in a safe and nurturing environment, providing age appropriate activities that focus on the physical, social and educational needs of youth in our community
As one of the largest providers of programs for youth in the Flatbush community, our after school programs are collaborative efforts between FDC and five neighborhood schools: P.S. 152, P.S. 217, P.S. 315, Ditmas Jr. High School and Walt Whitman Junior High School. FDC’s afterschool programs serve over 900 Flatbush youth by providing activities that strengthen and support their academic, civic, cultural, creative, social, physical and emotional development while supporting family and community needs.
