Summer Camp 2018

Week 1 of HIP Summer Camp has been a success! We have accomplished the "Red, White, Blue and You" theme for the first week. Children have learned about Math, Science, History, Art and culture through the fun and educational curriculum our educators have created. We look forward to the upcoming weeks! week 1 SC.jpg

Community Day

Community Day 2018 was a complete success! Despite temperatures hanging in the mid-90's throughout the day more than 500 people stopped by to support our block party. Families were having fun, children bounced and climbed through obstacle courses, and people of all different backgrounds and cultures celebrated Hazleton's growing diversity. We hope to see you all back at #CommunityDay2019!  

Brought to you by: PPL, HIP, American Eagle, Amazon, System One, Aetna, Michaels, and Standard Speaker.



#LastDay of After School for our Scholars

Sadly we have reached the end of the road for our 2017-2018 After School Pogram. Throughout our scholar year we had Dr. Seuss Celebrations, Ballet showcases, Making Ice Cream, Tutor Visits, various field trips and so much more. We really wish our scholars a great summer and a bright future ahead.

We also want to thank our teachers, volunteers, staff, parents and students for being great. We couldnt have done it without you! Cheers to the future!

HIP wins #RenewalAward


HIP is truly honored and humbled to have been selected as one of five recipients from more than 3,000 nominees to receive the 2018 Renewal Awards from The Atlantic and Allstate. This nationwide competition set out to “recognize local organizations driving positive change, finding innovative ways to make their communities stronger and bringing progress to the country.”

While we have certainly worked very hard at HIP for the past 4½ years we see this award as a tribute to our entire community. Without the partnerships we have formed with other outstanding local organizations that share our vision and the ongoing support from so many businesses we simply would not have even been a consideration for the Renewal Award. And we owe an additional “thank” you to the many volunteers who work selflessly along with us and make meeting our mission goals possible. We are truly indebted to so many of the people of Hazleton for your continued support.
