free academic support for your child

The Learning Lamp After School Outreach Program has sites in Johnstown’s Moxham, Prospect, Oakhurst and (new in Fall 2015) Coopersdale communities. The program accepts children in grades K-8 and is supervised by a PA certified teacher. Funded through the United Way of the Laurel Highlands, individual and corporate donations, grants and proceeds from EcoKids Children’s Consignment Boutique, participation in the After School Outreach Program is FREE!

Locations and Hours of Operation

Outreach sites at Moxham, Prospect and Oakhurst meet Mondays through Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m. and include homework help, structured recreational, enrichment, character- and team-building activities and a hot meal. The program also features free summer camp at each location. The new Coopersdale site offers the same services three days per week, Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m. The Outreach program follows the Greater Johnstown School District calendar.

SnapologyParents or guardians must complete a registration form for their child that includes emergency contact information. A participating agency in the Cambria County Child Development Corporation Child and Adult Care Food Program, The Learning Lamp is able to provide children a free evening meal every program day. Registration for the meal program is required as part of the enrollment process.

Children can drop in for as few or as many days as the family would like. Full participation is encouraged as on-site coordinators and staff assess children’s needs in reading and math and provide added support. When possible, The Learning Lamp staff will work with your child’s teacher to address specific academic needs such as vocabulary and spelling.

Caring Staff with Clearances

Our outreach staff are caring adults with Act 151 (Child Abuse), Act 34 (State Police) and Act 114 (FBI fingerprinting) clearances. A strict behavior management and point reward system are followed. Ongoing disciplinary issues can result in suspension from the program. Staff adhere to a “three strikes and you’re out” policy with parent notification.
