Summer 2020 Update

For summer employees: If you’re looking for job info, you can find it in the Summer page in the main menu.

Big thank you to everyone who advocated for the city summer jobs! Our virtual jobs program started July 13 and we’re already off to a great start working remotely with 50 young people throughout the state.

Staff are still working from home and we will not be resuming workshops at the studio this summer in order to focus our energy on the jobs program as we plan for a safe return to the studio hopefully this fall.

That said, we are planning a number of opportunities this summer open to all youth members! See the outdoor activity schedule below. In order to keep youth to staff ratios manageable, please sign up in advance by emailing jason.colon@as220.org and michele.fontes@as220.org.

All Activities start at 4pm.

  • Sports with Jason – Mondays (alternating between Mary Fogarty Park and Wanskuck Park)
  • Book Club with Meesh – Fridays (Wanskuck Park)
  • Gardening with AM – Thursdays 7/23 and 8/6 (Hopkins Park)
  • Watercolors with Simcha – Thursdays 7/30 and 8/13

We’re also hoping to plan a virtual Mic Madness and more so stay on the lookout for those. This will be a different summer in so many ways but we know we can bring the AS220 Youth energy to our virtual and outdoor spaces!
