The Side Door Program in Montclair runs throughout the school year and offers a cool place for middle school kids to hang out after school. The program is back for another school year, thanks to being selected as one of the recipients of a fall 2010 grant from the Montclair Foundation.

Side Door is run by Union Congregational Church in Montclair. Kids register (with their parents signature) and have a place to watch movies, play games, eat pizza and just hang with their friends on Friday afternoons.
