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!

Flash Mob Choir singing Country Roads! From Celebrate Hazleton!

 

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 where happening around Hazleton were people were allowed to participate and enjoy themselves!

One of the events was this Flash Mob Choir that sang "Country Roads". We are so happy and thrilled to have been part of an iconic event, where everyone's delighted smiles were portrayed genuinely! 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!!

Several years ago we introduced the Hazleton Integration Project (#HIP) as a catalyst for positive change in our area. We believed that whatever differences exist between the people who now call Hazleton home are far outweighed by the common sense of humanity that binds us together.
