Looking for the best afterschool arts programs for children? Check out Casita Maria for Arts & Education, our Catholic Charities affiliate in the South Bronx.  Open for all grades, kindergarten through 12, ages 6 – 18!

Better still, these classes are not just artsy and fun, they are empowering.  Casita Maria creates a culture of learning through quality social, cultural and educational opportunities, giving children, many from Latino families recently arrived in the U.S., the educational support they need to thrive.

Originally named the Elizabeth Seton League, Inc. after St. Elizabeth Seton, the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church, Casita Maria became the first charitable organization to serve the Hispanic Community in New York City.  Its Bronx-based programs in-school and after-school arts and education programs, summer camps and internships serve more than 1,400 neighborhood youth.

Too many children return from school to empty apartments and the lure of the streets. At Catholic Charities we offer an alternative: safe, high-quality programs staffed by motivated professionals and volunteers. Our programs help children pursue their strengths through academic support, sports, recreation, arts and cultural experiences
