subway sleuths

The New York Transit Museum‘s Subway Sleuths program is now accepting applications for 2nd through 5th graders for the Fall 2023 semester of Subway Sleuths.

The program is for students on the autism spectrum who love trains and are able to engage with peers.

Subway Sleuths is a 10-week after-school program at the New York Transit Museum that builds on a shared interest in trains among students on the autism spectrum. Subway Sleuths supports peer-to-peer interaction, provides a context for navigating social situations, and develops students’ confidence by affirming their interest in public transit. Using a strength-based approach, participants explore the Transit Museum’s content and collection, sharing their enthusiasm with others while engaging in transit-themed games and activities. Each session provides opportunities for group collaboration and different forms of social engagement.

Ten weekly sessions are facilitated by Transit Museum Educators and contracted professionals trained in ASD support.

All applications must be submitted by Sept. 11 at 8 p.m.
