The After School Connection offers quality school-age child care for working parents/guardians that provides opportunities and experiences that stimulate a child’s intellectual, social, physical, and emotional development. We strive to create a warm, supportive and friendly environment which allows children the opportunity to create and participate in successful friendships and partnerships. The After School Connection is a choice program that offers children both structured and non-structured learning opportunities, all under the guidance of trained, caring and professional staff within a secure and familiar environment.

The After School Connection program offers full day vacation camps during the the Winter and Spring Recess school vacation week. Vacation camp is open to all White Plains elementary school children for a weekly fee separate from the fee paid for the regular daily program. The program takes place at one of the elementary schools and is open from 8:30 am to 6 pm.

The fee for the program is $203.


The Youth Bureau offers Scouting through our After School Connection Program. Scouting provides a program for young men that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of citizenship, and develops personal fitness.


The Youth Bureau sponsors two Girl Scout Troops through our After School Program. Participants discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls working together. Through enriching experiences, such as field trips, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental activities, girls grow courageous and strong.


The White Plains Youth Bureau and the Recreation and Parks Department have opened a new community agriculture project on the grounds of New York Hospital, adjacent to the existing community garden. Featuring a large plot of excellent fenced growing land, where vegetables, herbs and flowers, will be harvested using organic methods, for donation to the White Plains food pantry for distribution. The garden is maintained and cared for by community residents.

Garden members have the opportunity to learn about gardening, engage in healthy activities with their families, and contribute to this wonderful extension of the concept of White Plains Cares by helping provide healthy food to our neighbors in need.


The tennis program is intended to introduce the game of tennis to as many children in White Plains as possible, especially children of color who may not ordinarily have access to tennis instruction or opportunities to learn the game. It is a year round program, offering tennis instruction, using the USTA's Quickstart format for teaching children the game.
