The COMPASS After School Program celebrated 20 years at P.S. 115.
20th anniversary of
after school program
BY JENNA BAGCAL
For the past two decades, Commonpoint
Queens’ COMPASS Aft er School Program
has been a free, recreational outlet for students
at P.S. 115.
On Nov. 26, the social services organization
held its 20th anniversary celebration
at the Glen Oaks elementary
school, complete with dinner and a
show. Students, parents, staff members
and alumni, some of whom are program
volunteers, performed songs and dances
while parents donated the refreshments.
In 1999, Iris Shaw started the
COMPASS program at P.S. 115 as a free
way to provide students with academic
enhancement, socialization, recreation
and earning opportunities. Th rough
COMPASS/SONYC, which stands for
Comprehensive Aft er School System of
NYC and School’s Out NYC, children
were also exposed to the arts, technology
and other diverse activities.
Th e New York City’s Department of
Youth and Community Development
through COMPASS/SONYC initiatives
provide funding for these types of aft er
school programs. P.S. 115 in one of several
schools around the borough celebrating
the 20-year milestone.
COMPASS Program Director Michelle
Pasha and her team put together the
annual exhibition and has been involved
with the program for the past 13 years.
Several of Pasha’s employees who participated
in the COMPASS program, along
with currently enrolled children and their
parents, expressed gratitude for the program’s
guidance and services.
Special guest Councilman Barry
Grodenchik, COMPASS employees and
Assistant Director Shiva Sharma showcased
a special performance under a sign
that read, “Th ankful for Twenty.”
“Brilliant student performances last
evening @KevinBurke115as we celebrated
20 years of the Compass aft erschool program.
We need a city where every child
has access to Compass. Congratulations
to the students and program provider @
Grodenchik on Twitter.
In addition to aft er school activities,
COMPASS also provides a free summer
camp where children can participate in
fun camping trips and get academic support
while school is not in session. While
in the program, students can participate
to become a “counselor in training”,
which allows them to work with younger
peers and gain leadership skills. Many
who have enrolled in COMPASS return
to volunteer or work as paid staff members.
