The After School Program in Lincoln Square at the MLK Jr. High School Campus is one of several high school afterschool programs funded by The After-School Corporation (TASC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality and availability of in school afterschool programs in New York City and New York state. TASC presently funds afterschool programs in 143 public schools in New York City and 75 schools in 51 other New York State school districts. The goals of The After School Program in Lincoln Square are to improve the social, academic, and vocational competencies of school-aged youth; prevent out of wedlock pregnancies; reduce negative behaviors; and provide parents with a safe space for their children after school. The Lincoln Square Business Management Association, a non-profit organization, manages this program.
