Out of School Enrichment

The Seed Sowers and Storytellers program provides free after-school engagement for students grades 3-6 from John James Audubon School 33. 

About the Program


This Spring, SMSJ is expanding its collaborative partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extention and Freedom Scholars Learning Center by introducing the Seed Sowers and Storytellers program, a pilot program designed to celebrate our youth and our neighborhood while building our collective futures and honoring our legacies and histories.

Seeds Sowers and Story Tellers is a collaborative effort between St. Mark’s and St. John’s Episcopal Church, John James Audubon School (No.33), Freedom Scholars Learning Center, and Cornell Cooperative Extension Monroe County

4H Development Program. The expertise and passions of our partners support a robust curriculum that encourages the development and well-being of our youth and the growth of our community through gardening, literacy, and cultural practices. The program occurs twice a week beginning in March and ending in June. 


Although Seed Sowers has already begun, it is not too late to apply. Given the length of the program, youth will be accepted and admitted to the program on a rolling basis. If you or someone you know may be interested in enrolling the young scholar(s) in your life in the Seed Sowers and Storytellers, you may use the link below to apply!
