Each day, with the support of people like YOU, The Learning Lamp makes a difference in the lives of children—many of whom would fail to succeed in school, if not for our affordable programs.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Contributions to The Learning Lamp level the academic playing field by making high-quality tutoring, preschool, child care, before and after school care and innovative enrichment programs accessible to all children, regardless of income.

AFTER SCHOOL OUTREACH PROGRAM

Making a difference in a child’s life doesn’t happen overnight. Transformative change requires caring, commitment and time. That’s what The Learning Lamp After School Outreach Program has provided Javon over the last seven years. Javon first came to Outreach in Johnstown’s Moxham neighborhood in kindergarten. At the time, Javon didn’t know any numbers or letters; he couldn’t tell you the sound they made or even name them.

Outreach staff, led by a certified teacher, practiced identifying and sounding out letters and numbers with Javon daily for two years. Despite times of wanting to give up, Javon attended Outreach nearly every day and pushed through homework because he had the support of caring staff who encouraged him to strive for success.

This is where you come in. The Outreach program would not exist without the generous support of our community. We invite you to consider a gift of any size to help continue this worthwhile program. Funded solely through contributions and grants, Outreach truly puts your dollars to work every single day. And research has shown that for every $1 spent on quality youth programs, the return is $5 in savings down the road! Now, that’s an investment with payoffs for everyone.

PRESCHOOL TUITION ASSISTANCE

Imagine a child’s first day of kindergarten. She’s excited to start school. Then, she watches as the girl next to her prints her name. Over time, excitement gives way to frustration when she cannot master the same skills as easily as her classmates – because her family could not afford tuition to send her to a quality preschool program.

Fortunately, Bailey will have a much different experience when she starts school. She’ll jump into kindergarten ready to learn after graduating from The Learning Lamp preschool – with help from generous people like you! A preschool scholarship enabled Bailey to work with skilled teachers and high quality curriculum to help her develop early literacy skills that prepared her for kindergarten.

When you consider that every $1 invested in quality early learning saves $12 on future costs like special education, a gift of any size has impact. We invite you to support children like Bailey and give them the start they need to take on the world!
