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 17 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, many of our students return to our Drop In Program for assistance in the completion of their homework as well as to assist in the lower grade classrooms.
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.
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 the inner city youth in Poughkeepsie, New York.
Our Mission is to bring about a lasting improvement in the educational and social lives of our inner city children. We recognize the restricted mobility of our inner city families and strive to provide the children in these areas with the skills, understanding, and self-assurance to succeed and remain hopeful about their academic and social futures. We seek to demonstrate that early intervention is effective in raising academic achievement levels.
