Education :: Collaborating Partners
The nearby Livingston Avenue Elementary school is an opportunity to enhance primary and secondary academic opportunities throughout the HNHF area. The creation of mentoring and additional academic enrichment programs at Livingston Avenue Elementary will improve early childhood education. Nationwide Children’s Hospital works to expand after-school programming to create literacy education programs for children and adults.
Project Mentor- Nationwide Children’s Hospital volunteers mentor students in schools near the hospital. Adults mentor students weekly, beginning in third grade and supporting those students as they advance through middle school and high school.
Education Courses- Nationwide Children’s Hospital offers courses for parents, children and families to teach a variety of topics. From babysitter training to autism awareness and CPR certifications, the hospital provides first-hand learning experiences. Visit www.nationwidechildrens.org/education-classes for more information.
Family Literacy Project – New for 2011, Nationwide Children’s has teamed up with the Dominican Learning Center to offer family literacy classes. February 10 through May 19, volunteers will tutor adults and young or school-aged children every other Thursday at Livingston Avenue Elementary after school hours. Volunteer tutors from the hospital staff and the community are being trained by the Dominican Learning Center. Each month a different learning/literacy theme will be featured, like Health and Nutrition and their Child’s Education.
