Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The LHA Youth Activities Program, Inc. is invested in providing both educational and recreational opportunities to the youth residing in both our family Public Housing developments as well as the surrounding neighborhood. We believe that in promoting positive and healthy extracurricular activities our children will be better prepared to participate in the community as young adults.
The Lowell Housing Authority (LHA) has successfully administered an academic-based, after school enrichment program since 2009. The overall mission of the Learning Zone is to offer daily tutoring assistance, hands-on activities, critical thinking exercises, informational guest speakers, and recreational opportunities to further promote academic success and broaden one's quest for knowledge. Program staff also act as a liaison between parents and school staff. The Learning Zone sites serve youth from 5th to 8th grades, and are located at two LHA properties. The Learning Zone hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 3:00PM-6:00PM, September through June. Each site is capable of serving twenty-five participants and is staffed with one Program Manager, one Program Coordinator, and volunteer tutors.
