Mission Statement

Hilltown Families believes in creating resilient and sustainable communities by developing and strengthening a sense of place in our children and citizens through community-based education and engagement. We work to accomplish this by identifying the embedded learning that is found everywhere in our communities, interpreting through writing the educational and social value to be gained through engagement, and making the information accessible via online networks. The opportunities for community engagement include community events, local institutions, and community service.

Description

Hilltown Families is an online grassroots communication network for families living throughout the four counties of western Massachusetts. Our online network consist of an award winning website, eNewsletter, radio show/podcast, social networking platforms, and online bulletin boards. Hilltown Families award winning web site ( www.HilltownFamilies.org) includes weekly listings and blog posts of community-based educational and service-based learning opportunities throughout the four counties of western Massachusetts. We underscore placemaking opportunities that integrate learning and are non-commercial in nature. Opportunities can be age-specific or intergenerational, involve sharing of knowledge and skills, support creative-free play, involve nature-based learning and art education, and support a wide variety of learning curriculums.
