Second Street Educational Center
200 Plainfield Avenue
The Second Street Education Center is a 25,000 s.f. early childhood educational and community center for lease by the Second Street Youth Center (SSYC), a provider of high quality early childhood education for 210 children through funding received primarily from the Early Childhood program funded by the State of New Jersey and administered by the Plainfield School District. The center also serves up to 120 students through after school programming where it provides meals and after school resources.
Currently, the organization operates in and provides services to the community in an outdated facility that is over 80 years old and is located in an industrial area within the city of Plainfield surrounded by properties that have a history of heavy industrial usages. Our proposed development will provide a new state-of-the-art educational facility that will enable the Second Street Youth Center to properly provide excellent services to the children it serves and their families. The project also includes a 2,500 sf urban farm.
