1111 Voices and us (Hazleton One Community Center) worked together to create two day appreciative artful events for August 4 and 5. Each day consisted of different activities that were happening around Hazleton were people where allowed to participate and enjoy themselves!
One of the events was this Flas Mob Choir that sang "Country Roads". We are so happy and thrilled to have been part of an iconic event, where everyones delighted smiles were portrayed genuinly! The event was proof that there is still "good in the world" like Dan Simrell said!
We hope next time more people participate, so we can really make it an unforgettable experience!!
The Hazleton Integration Project is a community-based effort that seeks to unite the people of many different cultures who now call Hazleton home. The project is the brainchild of Hazleton native and Chicago Cubs Manager Joe Maddon, who has been named Manager of the Year three times and who recently managed the Cubs to their first World Series tittle since 1908.
Maddon and HIP leaders believe that diversity can be a city’s greatest strength and through interacting with different cultural groups we develop a greater understanding of our common humanity while learning to appreciate our cultural similarities and differences.
For our efforts the Hazleton Integration Project was awarded the 2014 Human & Civil Rights Award from the Pennsylvania State Education Association.
Our Summer Camp was a success! The children enjoyed every moment, from learning about science, art, music, and fitness. Here at the Hazleton One Community Center we already miss the munchkins, so much so that plans for the HIP Summer Camp 2018 is already in the way! Thank you to all of our adult and young volunteers in helping us run a successful Summer Camp program!
