Page Turners

Focusing on literacy, RMM’s Page Turners program brings kids into an active and stimulating group situation after school ends and before parents get home from work. Volunteers and staff help children work through their assignments, offering aid and encouragement without supplying answers. Page Turners is equipped with a library of more than 1,000 books, iPads and internet access to help kids get research done and surf with supervision. Page Turners provides kids with a non-threatening, non-competitive work environment that will enable them to do their best, both in and out of class.


Registration for Page Turners is currently open. Email pageturners@rmmnyc.org with any questions. 

About Page Turners

RMM, in collaboration with Metro Baptist Church and a network of partners, provides direct and educational services that promote individual and community growth.  Page Turners After School, a program within RMM, provides homework help and enrichment opportunities for children in grades 1-5. We believe that a vibrant community life is vital to the academic and personal success of children.  Through emphasis on literacy, education, and character building, we desire for children to be lifelong learners that give back to their communities.  


Fall 2020 Information

Due to COVID-19, Page Turners After School Program has shifted program hours to accommodate hybrid and remote learning schedules. Each family will have the opportunity to sign their child(ren) up for one session of Page Turners each week. Sessions are offered Wednesday-Friday in the morning for remote learning support and in the afternoon for non-academic after school support. 


Program Details: 

  • Morning sessions will run from 8:45 am to 12:30 am in order to support children who are remote learning.
  • Afternoon sessions will run from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm and will be focused on non-academic games and support, including outings to the park. Tutoring will not be offered during afternoon sessions. 
  • At this point, we are not able to pick-up from any school. Children will need to be dropped off and picked up from each session. 
  • Each session will have a maximum of ten children
