Last week, the Beacon program housed at the Parsons Community School received $25,000 in funding.
Assemblywoman Nily Rozic presented a check to the principal with students looking on in the auditorium.
The Beacon program provides after school services and activities. The funding will help sustain programming such as enrichment activities in leadership and civics, college and career readiness and STEM.
Students can partake in sports and recreation, visual and performing arts and health and wellness at the program as well.
Rozic has also allocated funding for the Beacon programs at MS 158 in Bayside and MS 216 in Fresh Meadows.
