I took my daughter to register for this program a few years ago. She is not very artistic and is pretty shy. The staff was very sympathetic and dealt directly with her. They told her to make up a club that she would like to be part of - but if she made up a club - she would be responsible for recruitment and they would find someone to teach it. She was really excited about that and when we left, she was up all night trying to create a club. She created Fashion Design and they made it happen! I have never seen my daughter work so hard. To be honest, I did not think that she had it in her! The club made some dresses and some jewelry. She had a blast! I sent her to live with her father last year and she has been bugging me about coming back so that she can return to the program. I check up on 1City and they are still doing fashion design!

My daughter had a lot of fun in this program. There are a lot of great clubs to choose from and the programs are free. My daughter was in the cheerleading club. They also have dance, step, fashion design (which was also interesting), basketball, flag football and more. The staff is very strict and there are a lot of rules that the kids have to follow (no teasing, no cursing, have to be on time), but the kids seem to love going there. They also give opportunities for the high school kids to earn community service hours for school and also help them apply for youth employment. Their step team has performed at Madison Square Garden and is very good. My son is really anxious to get to the fourth grade just so that he can start the program. If you are looking for a safe but interesting place for your kids to go on Saturdays (during the school year, I think they are closed in the summer), I recommend this program.
