Henry Street Settlement opens doors of opportunity for Lower East Side residents and other New Yorkers through social services, arts, and health care programs.
Sports and recreation programs for youth ages 12 to 19 are offered at two Henry Street locations, all at no cost.
At both the Boys & Girls Republic (BGR), 888 East Sixth Street, and 301 Henry Street, there is open gym on Monday and Wednesday evenings. Both sites also offer Friday basketball clinics that help participants develop skill, endurance and confidence on the court.
Both open gym sessions and clinics are offered for ages 15 and under from 6 to 7:30 p.m., and for youth 19 and under from 7:30 to 9 p.m. On Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays BGR offers spring, summer and fall basketball leagues for both age groups.
At both locations, case management services and academic tutoring are also offered to participants.
