ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION: The Lenfest Center is a community center serving the Hunting Park neighborhood. The Center offers a wide variety of programs for young people (whom we call ‘scholars’) in grades K through 12. The Lenfest Center has reimaged its role as an Out-of-School-Time provider. At the core of this work is a commitment to build a diverse cohort of programs that provide year-round, learning experiences which allow participants to build confidence through Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) enrichment programming, College or Career Readiness instruction, in additional to the already robust athletics offerings. We now offer a more diverse and comprehensive set of programs serving K through 12th graders, with specific partnerships with leadership, faculty, and students from the Mary McLeod Bethune School (K-8), Alexander K. McClure School (PreK-5) and Bayard Taylor (K-5). All of our programs are safe, structured, and fun. Mission: Through academic, athletic, and enrichment programming and community partnerships, the Lenfest Center will foster the educational, physical, and social-emotional health and growth of community members, school-aged scholars, and their families in Hunting Park, thereby supporting current and future generations to thrive and live happy, healthy lives. Vision: By 2028, the Lenfest Center will be a state-of-the-art urban community center that hosts and provides high-quality, trauma-informed, community-focused programming and resources for at least 25 percent of all school-aged scholars and their families in the surrounding community. Functioning as a vibrant hub that facilitates neighborhood engagement, advocacy, culturally relevant education, and improved community health outcomes the Lenfest Center will serve as a transformative model from which all can learn.
