Second annual ‘Cuse Spot to Run Programming for Local Youth
For the second year in a row, Syracuse University students will be sharing their skills and talents with youth at Wilson Park Community Center. During the Syracuse City School District’s mid-winter break, community centers stay open to entertain community children throughout the day. As an effort to both engage the Syracuse University mission, Scholarship in Action, as interact with the population just beyond the campus hill, students will be conducting specialized courses at the center all week.
From Tuesday, Feb. 21 through Friday, Feb. 24, nearly 50 volunteers will be filling the small corners of Wilson Park Community Center. Students will be offering classes ranging from Jewelry Making, Fashion Drawing and Screenwriting to several introductory language courses to presentational speaking. A morning cooking class will prepare the daily lunch served to all youth and volunteers. All other classes will run from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 2-4 p.m.
The ‘Cuse Spot at Wilson Park is being sponsored and funded through the Public Affairs Office in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
