This program is offered for FREE. Assemble believes that the 21st Century skills youth learn in our programs should be accessible to everyone! If you are able to make a donation to help us cover our costs, it is greatly appreciated! (The average cost of an after school program in Allegheny County is over $100 per week).

We highly encourage parents to ensure that their children can attend most of the sessions as the activities build throughout the month. If your child is only able to attend occasionally, please check out our drop-in program, Saturday Crafternoons, which takes place from 1-3 pm each Saturday at Assemble. We also welcome them to our monthly Learning Parties.

Assemble Afterschool

Calling all after-school artists, budding engineers, and young makers! Assemble Afterschool is a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) program that gives kids of all ages a space to learn through making, test out wild ideas, and build a better future. Each week, students will explore the wonderful world of STEAM as they participate in fun, hands-on activities and dream up creative inventions. They’ll also get special visits from local artists, makers, and technologists who will share their passion and talents with the group!
