Traverse Square

Student run and neighborhood based, the Traverse Square After-school program provides a community setting for Middletown children to receive academic and social support.  Also known as "The Center," this student designed program is geared to provide Middletown children with the proper resources to succeed in all aspects of life. Helping the children with their homework is the main goal of the program, and we also provide academic enrichment, recreational activities, and Friday afternoon fieldtrips for the students.

The Center exists as a communal space in which the children have created a place of their own through their lasting relationships and friendships with each other and the Wesleyan student staff, and their commitment to the Center and the values it represents. 

The program runs Monday - Thursday from 4pm - 6pm.  Tutors are asked to commit at least two days per week.
