Last week I was invited to Philadelphia for the 7th Annual Lynne Honickman Digital Arts Festival.
This event, named for the Project HOME supporter and trustee Lynne Honickman, showcased the work of the teens in film, music, and photography classes. The teens worked on this event all year. The festival included live musical performances, a photography exhibit, a robotics demonstration, and a variety of food that was prepared by their very own culinary arts students.
What’s so great about the Learning Center is the location – right in the middle of the community. No trying to find a way to get across town, or catching a bus or subway. When something this great as the Learning Center is right there for you to touch, just think of how many children, teenagers it can help in so many ways.
Programs are adapted to help all residents of the community to move toward greater wealth by intensifying their educational and employment chances through complete technology and literacy instruction. The Center has programs such as: College Access Program, K-8 After-School Program, and Adult Learning Center.

Support your local communities. As you take the time to support their vision, don’t forget to document and share their story. You never know – you or maybe someone you know may be looking for something just like this. This isn’t my local community but it is my community.
