After school and Summer Programs

389378_279078432138021_1101321721_nWe welcome students 5-14 from 2:30- 5:00 pm, Monday through Thursday during the school year. Program includes fun activities, tutoring, recreation, and a snack. A positive environment for kids once school lets out! Our Summer Program for our teens is a great way to help them with self-esteem, goal-setting, and working as a team. Many of our graduates from this program go on to be more successful in school and career development. “My kids participated in the “Summer of Success program” several years in a row and have always enjoyed attending programs at the Center. In the face of adversity and poor funding, making it through at least 2 state funding shut downs, it has maintained a presence in the community despite limited donations from the public, local, county, or state/federal grant sources. Having Mercyhurst University as a partner has been wonderful God-send. I donate to the Center every year and wish others would as well. It’s a vital place for our children and a vital place for Erie adults as well!”—Andrea Jeffress “This community center has always been a part of my life and now my children participate in activities there. Always striving to make our community better. Great job everyone!”—Nadine Leach
