SJS Community Center at Humboldt Park
After School Program
Trained volunteers work alongside SJS staff to provide you one-on-one academic support, homework help, art programs, health and nutrition education, and leadership and character-building activities. Regularly scheduled science, social studies, and cultural awareness clubs allow you to gain a broader appreciation for the world around you.
Saturday Tutoring and Recreation
Saturday tutoring is by appointment only and offers you individual assistance in core subjects or math, reading, and writing. Humboldt Park’s Youth Program is available for students from 2nd to 8th grade who live in the Humboldt Park and West Town neighborhoods.
In conjunction with seasonal school breaks in the Winter, Spring, and Summer, the SJS Community Center offers all-day camps close to home. Camps operate from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm, and provide two meals and snacks throughout the day. You will travel on field trips to many of Chicago's landmarks and museums, as well as take part in a variety of academic, sports, music, dance, art, cooking, health, cultural, and team-building activities.

Hoops & Hopes
On Monday evenings, the St. Joseph Services Community Center at Austin keeps its doors open and collaborates with a student organization from DePaul University to offer basketball programming to San Miguel Middle School students and graduates. DePaul students run tournament-style basketball games and work one-on-one with clients to improve technical and teamwork basketball skills.
The SJS Community Center at Austin opens San Miguel’s doors on Sundays for youth in the Austin community to play basketball. Our gym features a full-length court, six basketball rims, and a shot clock. Pick-up, tournament-style basketball games based on age group are operated and supervised by St. Joseph Services staff.
