CAMBA Beacon 269


Since 1993, CAMBA has administered the Beacon Center at P.S. 269 in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. Beacon 269 is a hub for families to access integrated and comprehensive services, including after-school for middle school youth, summer camp, summer jobs, and other educational and recreational activities. Evening and Saturday activities feature karate, chess, soccer, robotics, academic tutoring, and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes. CAMBA’s Beacon Center at P.S. 269 also features a middle school club model where young people can choose between books, a basketball program, dance classes, media/technology workshops and other clubs that deepen learning by combining practice in academic and communication skills with popular activities. The program also provides pathways for young people to grow via the Leadership and Youth Council and college tours that expose them to educational options. These individuals move into employment through after-school and other CAMBA programs, while continuing to pursue higher education. Beacon 269 broadens the horizons of young people, strengthens their social, emotional and basic academic skills and provides a safe place where families can gain new skills together. Beacon Center at P.S. 269 currently serves 1,200 people, including 288 middle school youth.
