Each square represents our Hamilton Wings' Primary Partners:
Youth, Families, Community and Educators.
Our young people are involved in a minimum of 30 hours of leadership development activities for maximum growth and interactive connections. Each program allows youth to develop their skills in anticipatory planning and thinking, decision-making, communication, composition, and community participation.
We offer programs for our childrens' families to support their ongoing growth and achievements.
Our workshops include reflective goal setting; strategies for social, emotional, and academic development; communication strategies;
and data regarding their child's strengths and future growth opportunities.
Our young people learn about personal and social responsibility.
Our young people serve as leaders in the community and develop arts-based, community service projects.
Teachers are an integral part of a child's everyday life. Our program team provides a supportive environment for educators to gain professional development, integrate arts into their curriculum, and collaborate to find solutions to classroom challenges.
Hamilton Wings promotes leadership and learning through the arts. We specifically direct our work and services to youth and families living in underserved communities. Hamilton Wings offers an array of innovative and impactful, developmentally appropriate afterschool programs for youth ages 5-18 and their families. We build partnerships with leaders and organizations in order to fulfill our mission. Schools are among our greatest community partners.
Our motto is “giving children the wings to soar” and it through effective, hands-on arts based curricula that integrate best practices that youth and their families find their voice, develop school and life skills, take responsibility for their learning and leadership and contribute to the world around them.
Our curriculum seeks to increase parent engagement and involvement in public schools. It is important to a child’s education to create a shared, high-quality arts experience that aligns with classroom curriculum and real world life experiences. Hamilton Wings invites you to build important and meaningful relationships that supports learning through the arts.
“I’ve learned that I can be whoever I want no matter what anyone says and to be yourself.”
