Review for The Learning Lamp, Inc, Johnstown, PA, USA
The Learning Lamp is a remarkable community asset! The agency Currently delivers childcare services in in 5 daycare centers, preschool programs, and before and after school care at 10 local districts - our staff provides their kiddos with an engaging, secure, fun environment. Helping children succeed is the cornerstone of their mission. Not only delivered in the centers, but through other programming such as tutoring, prevention programs, credit recovery, and cyberschool support. The staff brings a tremendous amount of passion and dedication to the organization and its constituents.
Located on the outskirts of the city of Johnstown, The Learning Lamp also provides free outreach programming to at-risk youth at 3 locations. Children within the neighborhoods of Moxham, Oakhurst and Coppersdale receive a hot meal after school 4 days per week and homework help. Fun is also in the mix with field trips and 2-weeks of camp during the summer. Many of these children do not have engaged parenting and good social support. Our staff makes them feel important and helps them navigate through their many challenges providing them with a secure safety net.
Our Johnstown community and its outlying areas struggle economically - by putting the mission into practice through programming The Learning Lamp helps children succeed emotionally, academically and socially. As we build and invest in our youth, the hope for our area is to stop the "brain drain", keeping our smart and talented individuals and families here - reinvesting in the next generation.
