The Darby Foundation

Empowering children through various sports and lifestyle initiatives.

Established in 2010, The Darby Foundation has created and supported programs from career days, golf camps, mentorships, internships and activities that motivate young people to DREAM BIG to reach their full potential in life by giving them a way to channel their energies into sports and a healthy lifestyle.

STEAMS Afterschool Academy

STEAMS Afterschool Computer Academy will serve elementary/middle school and high school students recruited from Freeport NY and its surrounding communities. Students enrolled in the academy, in addition to receiving assistance with regular homework assignments, will strengthen already existing math and science skills by using computer programs and websites.
The decision to create a STEAMS Afterschool Computer Academy is based on the documented importance of science, technology, engineering and math as well as the benefit of providing a project-based, contextualized model that fosters critical thinking, problem solving and hands-on learning.  The natural/physical sciences, computer and digital technology, engineering concepts and math are all ways in which we solve problems in real time and are not simply ‘abstract’ subjects.  Community support and sponsorship of an Afterschool Computer Academy solidified the decision to establish this opportunity for youngsters in the Freeport and the Long Beach, NY communities.
