Starting the year with our After School Scholars

IMG 2932

The Afterschool Scholars Program enrolls students in grades K-6, with a special club program for middle school students in grades 7 & 8. The program operates Monday through Thursday from 3:30-5:30 p.m.We dedicate 45 minutes of classroom instruction each day to helping our scholars get a good start on their homework. 

Afterschool scholars in 4th through 6th grade are invited to participate in the Virtual Tutoring program, a partnership with Penn State University's College of Education. Each HIP scholar is partnered with a pre-service teacher from Penn State - University Park who is training to become a certified teacher in Pennsylvania. The tutors and scholars meet once per week for one hour for a total of 18 weeks throughout the academic year. During tutoring sessions, the Penn State tutors assist scholars with their homework and other school assignments in addition to leading educational activities that demonstrate research-based competencies for supporting language learners across the academic curriculum

Meet some of our Scholars!

Our After School Scholars Program is heading to its fourth week! So far the year started great and exciting! Here are some of our students enjoying their meal before heading to the classrooms to feed their brains with knowledge. Stay posted to follow our students through the exciting school year!

CTC: Together We Can

Mural

 Our Youth Outreach members: Communities that Care (CTC) created and painted a mural with the guidance of artists Jason Braun. All that were involved worked numerous hours to accomplish this beautiful peace of art, that just by looking at it inspires unity and acceptance. Our HOPE is that from this mural many more can be created around Hazleton, so that everytime "Hazletonians" take a look at one they feel unified and not alone. Thank you CTC members, and Thank you Jason Braun! 

 

HIP's Playground Grand Opening!

On Thursday June 15 the Hazleton One Community Center had its Grand opening for the Playground that will serve as a recreational facility for all the children involved in our center. The playground was donated by Hazleton Creek Properties LLC, who also donated a complete MAC Computer lab to our center. Our very own Joe Maddon and Frank DeAndrea received and inagurated the playground. Thank you, Mr. William Rinaldi for your support to our cause and center!
