The Middle School Program is the result of a collaboration between East End House, the City of Cambridge Department of Human Service Programs, and the Cambridge Public School District. The Program serves over 70 middle school youth at the Putnam Avenue Upper School in a comprehensive afterschool program, as well as a seven-week full-day summer program. Our philosophy is to inspire leadership through youth-designed initiatives; empower youth to create their own learning experiences through project-based learning; and utilize the unique talents and interests of the staff to create an environment that allows for free expression of ideas and concerns.

For information on enrolling your child in the Middle School Program, contact Stephanie Gendron at stephanie@eastendhouse.org

East End House's School Age Program is a nationally-accredited afterschool enrichment program which provides a safe, fun, and stimulating environment for children in kindergarten though fifth grade between the hours of 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. East End House also offers a full-day program during the summer and school vacation weeks. We believe that afterschool is an exciting and critical time in the lives of children — a time for trying new things enhancing academic and social skills, and building a solid foundation for the future.
