The Mattatuck Museum's after-school programs offer opportunities for children to learn and grow. Programs are supervised and safe, and present structured activities that increase youth involvement and help them gain new skills.
Raise the Roots
This community program for 7 – 13 year olds meets twice a week at WOW Community Center and the New Deliverance Church. Coordinated with the Brass City Harvest, this unique experience provides children with the opportunity to grow a garden, live a healthy lifestyle, and learn about Waterbury neighborhood history.
Dare to Dream
Intended for teens in grades 9 – 12, this program is designed to support student development into self-reliant adults and build a bridge to the next step of their lives--higher education. The two-part format includes tutoring to improve their proficiency in math and English and skill-building in the performing arts: dance, voice and theater.
For Summer of 2012, we are offering a program in collaboration with The Waterbury Public Schools 21st Century Learning Centers and Naugatuck Valley Community College (NVCC). Students will spend 2 days per week at NVCC and 2 days per week at the Museum. This program is an opportunity to study dance, theater, and music with professional instructors. The students will also have an opportunity to build skills in math and english with guidance and application procedures for colleges.
If you have a dream to go to college, if you enjoy theater and dance, then this is the program for you!
