Poverty Education/Community Connection

In addition to the work Family Scholar House does hands-on with our scholar-parents and their families, there is also the work FSH does in the Louisville community (and beyond) to be a voice for those who have sometimes have no voice.  On behalf of our single moms and dads and their children–our family–we are committed to speaking up when it comes to the devastating effects of poverty, homelessness, and domestic violence.

Community involvement, leadership and education matters to us.  To that end, this summer, Family Scholar House is launching a pilot Serving and Learning Day Camp.  Designed to help middle-school aged youth think about their place in the world and how they can be agents for positive change, the day camp will include a mix of education, play and service.  We’re excited about this new venue for impacting the Louisville community!

Below you’ll find all you need to know if you or someone you know might be interested in the day camp.  Take a look–and pass it on!

Serving and Learning Day Camp
brought to you by Family Scholar House

This coming June, Family Scholar House, a Louisville-based non-profit whose mission is to end the cycle of poverty by providing single-parent students the support they need to earn a four-year college degree, will be piloting its very first day camp for rising 7th and 8th grade youth.

The camp will include service at local mission organizations, poverty and justice education and awareness, and an opportunity to meet with and learn from Family Scholar House residents.

The camp is limited to 12 participants in this inaugural year, and will be led by Julie Richardson Brown, FSH Community Integration Coordinator.  Julie will be assisted by various volunteers and community leaders.
