North Hills Education and Recreation Program
The North Hills Education and Recreation Program provides enriching experiences throughout the year for many school age children living in the moderate to low income neighborhood of North Hills in Upper Dublin Township. We help secure funding for this after school program, teen mentoring program and summer day camp that provides one-on-one tutoring, educational reinforcement, guidance, encouragement and great recreational outlets to help level the playing field for less fortunate youngsters.
The after school program runs for approximately 32 weeks of the school year for children ages 6 to 18 in the North Hills neighborhood. Well-attended teen discussion groups and other enrichment activities are held in the evenings. The program continues as a five-week summer day camp offering a combination of continued educational instruction 12 hours per week followed by enjoyable youth sports, a variety of recreation activities and enjoyable field trips. The camp serves as a bridge from June to September to maintain academic progress over the summer months. A major goal of the summer camp is to allow underserved kids the opportunity to be engaged in the same wholesome summer experiences as their peers.
