BCCP at STAR is the largest program in our organization that provides middle school students with a comprehensive programmatic afterschool experience. We provide opportunities for youth to explore interests and creativity by creating safe, inspiring, interactive learning environments to feel comfortable designing and building, sharing with peers, and making creative choices. We encourage our students to use their voices and engage in dialogue about issues that affect their daily lives and communities. Students are able to develop critical thinking skills, and inter/intra personal awareness through the various activities we offer. Our activities range from Academic support, Leadership Development, Girls Who Code, NYU Langone Sex Ed classes, Video Game Design, Film and Photography, DIY Tech, Project Peace (Social Justice Projects), Dance, Health and Wellness ( including Sports tournaments), Art, Cheerleading, Maker, and Trips.
