We are a small local community academic skills center located in the community room of the Harriet Tubman Housing Complex. With a history spanning over 19 years, we have a passion for instilling a love of learning within our inner city youth. Our program is home to students from Kindergarten through Fifth grade. After advancing to Middle School, students are invited to use the program center to complete their homework and to become MENTORS for the younger students in the program.
HTASC is a community outreach mission of the Poughkeepsie United Methodist Church. It is through the generosity and commitment of PUMC that makes this program possible. Additional funding for the program is provided by Dyson Foundation, Community Foundation, Dutchess County Agency Partnership, and individual donations.
Thank you so much for your interest in our program! We hope that our website will provide you with all the information you need to begin your journey with assisting in the education of our students.
Our Mission is to bring about a lasting improvement in the educational and social lives of the children we serve. We seek to demonstrate that early intervention is effective in raising academic achievement levels.
