Since 1991 the New Song Community Learning Center has served the families, parents, and students of the Sandtown-Winchester community. Our service to our neighborhood comes in various forms, from running after-school programming, supporting the community through outreach, and providing extracurricular activity support to the New Song Academy, teachers, administrative and program staff. With the support and guidance of our board of directors and leadership team, we can continue to embody the vision of our historic organization and make our community stronger through educating our youth.
