YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF OUR STUDENTS!
For over 20 years, Providence Center has served the economically poorest community in Pennsylvania, with over half of our neighbors living below the poverty line. For the children, youth, and adults we serve, you help us bring joy and hope through education! Our programs are free or charge only a nominal fee, so your donation insures that we can offer services to our neediest neighbors.
Here’s how your tax deductible investment makes our work possible!
$50 covers the cost of a child attending a week of our after school program;
$75 offsets the costs of one month of English classes for an adult student;
$100 supports a Teen Leader for a week, helping her to grow as a role model;
$300 allows us to take the youth on trips to museums, theaters, and colleges.
SPONSOR A TEEN LEADER TODAY!
When you sponsor one of Providence Center’s Teen Leaders, your impact quickly spreads! Not only are you helping a high school student build workplace skills and prepare for college, but you are also giving children a role model and mentor. We pay our teens so that they can help their families and save for college, and $2,500 covers the hourly wages for one teen in our program during the school year. We have ten Teen Leaders in the program, so let’s exceed our goal!
Sponsorships are a great way for congregations, families, co-workers, or social groups to come together to make a difference in the lives of our students. Sponsors receive stories and pictures from programs they support.
$1,500 provides a year of field trips for our children and teens, opening their minds to worlds of possibilities outside of their neighborhood.
$2,000 sponsors a child for one year in our after school program, where she will have a safe place to grow academically and emotionally.
$2,500 sponsors a Teen Leader for the year, providing teens with job skills and college preparation, while giving the children a role model to emulate.
