For almost ten years now, the Samuel Field Y - with funding from the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development Department - has offered Out of School Time (O.S.T) programs at several elementary schools in Queens. This year, those programs will be offered at eight different sites, but they'll be offered as COMPASS NYC and SONYC programs instead of O.S.T. programs. Read more about these changes in our latest Blog entry.
