This weekend the students from the AAFSC’s after school program traveled to Bryant Park for an afternoon of ice-skating. Some of the students zoomed fearlessly onto the ice, while others clung to the walls as volunteers taught them how to skate. By the end of the afternoon all the students were skating on their own – although many spent more time on the ground than skating on the ice! The students enjoyed the trip to Bryant Park so much they unanimously declared that the after school program should go ice-skating every weekend!The trip to Bryant Park was supported by New York Care’s Urban Adventure’s program, which plans outings for youth groups in New York City. The AAFSC would like to extend a huge thank you to all the amazing volunteers for dutifully lacing up the students’ skates, holding hands as students gained their confidence on the ice, and lending hats and gloves to keep them warm. If you would like to join the ranks of these amazing volunteers by accompanying our students on future trips, visit the New York Cares website or contact Jake Keyel at 718-643-8000 ext. 39.
