Kidz Connected shot after school

Kidz Connected After School is part of the New City Kids of Jersey City!


Kidz Connected After School was started in January of 2007 as an effort to reach out to children in the Jersey City community by providing a safe after school environment where their needs would be given special attention.  Local children in the neighborhood surrounding the church could often be found playing in the church parking lot unsupervised in the after school hours. Seeing this as an opportunity to invest in the lives of these children, the church began developing a program to target this group. Since the start of the program in January 2007, an average of 12-15 students have been attending the program. Our volunteer staff members generously give their time and energy to see that these students grow to become responsible and Christ-like young people for the betterment of the community. 


To provide a Christ-centered after school environment where youth in Jersey CIty are equipped to face the pressures of urban life, to be successful in their academic pursuits, to form and maintain healthy friendships and to develop strong character.
