Youth Programs


The IMPACT Afterschool program is a mentoring and learning program focused on integrating refugee youths into Erie public, charter and private schools. The mission of IMPACT Afterschool is to increase participants’ academic performance to levels at or above their peers, meet the standards set for their grade level, inspire students about their future while cultivating an atmosphere of fellowship and learning. The program runs 2:30-5:00 Monday through Fridays during the school year.


We provides a range of free quality summer programs for area youth including job training, gardening, cooking courses, book clubs , sailing with the Bayfront Center for Maritime Studies, bicycle maintenance and much more.


Since 1992 the Walking in Black History program has impacted the lives of over a thousand youth in the Erie Community. The program is designed to complement and enhance formal learning about African American culture and American Civil Rights history.  Students participate in a “Freedom Ride” to Birmingham, Selma, Montgomery and Tuskegee, Alabama and Atlanta, Georgia and  are formally introduced to southern universities of higher education, museums and historical sites.  Additionally, students are given the opportunity to gain museum etiquette, public speaking and event planning skills and create a documentary of their experiences. Following the conclusion of the program, participants host a multicultural talent show and present their personal accounts of the program to the Erie community.
