Make a difference in a child’s life, by being a mentor, role model and fostering the love of reading. The Myers-Wilkins Community School Collaborative is dedicated to "fostering strong partnerships that expand opportunities for positive Youth Development and school, family, and community involvement promoting lifelong learning and appreciation of our diversity." Our integrated focus on academics, social emotional skills, youth development and community engagement leads to improved student learning, stronger families and healthier communities. Myers-Wilkins Community School Collaborative takes a preventive approach to addressing poverty’s negative impact on youth by working closely with students and their families to develop the skills they need to become educated and active members of the community.

Hillside Youth Theatre offers youth multiple opportunities to develop their intellectual, literacy, social, and life skills through an integrated academic and Performing Arts Program.
