The Neighborhood Center works in partnership with Skinner Middle School offering students, families, and community members a variety of engaging programs, events, and needed services. We are a nonprofit organization under the guidance of Denver Public School’s Department of Extended Learning with support from the Northwest Neighborhood Center Friends, a 501(c)(3) organization.

As a Comprehensive Center, we offer programs and workshops families and adults in the evenings, while serving Skinner students in After-School Programs (2:45-6:00 pm).
Programs cover all facets of STEAM curricula (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) as well as fundamental sports skill development. The Neighborhood Center supports Skinner students through an after-school tutoring program, intending to meet our students’ diverse needs through blended learning methods. The Neighborhood Center is a safe, welcoming, place where the Skinner community can learn and prosper.
“The Neighborhood Center is a cool place. It gives me peace of mind, making me comfortable about working because I know that quality people are there for us, giving their absolute 100% everyday. All staff members provide my child with not only a safe place after school, but an environment where kids get assistance with homework, make friends and get creative. Thanks Neighborhood Center, I am incredibly grateful.”
-Liliana Vasiu, Skinner parent

FEE STRUCTURE FOR 2016-17
The Neighborhood Center at Skinner is grant-funded program. Due to changing demographics of our school and our neighborhood, grants are becoming more scarce. We are able to provide high quality programming for our students, families and community at the very reasonable fee of $100/semester. Some special events have entrance fees and some specific classes have an additional materials fee. As always, scholarships and discounts are available, and additional donations from individuals and businesses are encouraged.
