Huntsville Inner City Learning Center was awarded $5,000 from the Vector Wealth Strategies Community Impact Fund in October 2018. Recently, we followed up with Susan Callaway, program director, to see how the grant was used.
“We’re looking to hire two employees, a teacher to work with our students academically while our volunteer coordinator would supervise more than 100 volunteers who assist in day-to-day operations,” Callaway said. “We’re in the process of interviewing candidates who would be able to work 32 hours a week.” HICLC has three people on staff and hires college students as interns while older students from the program serve as junior interns.
Huntsville Inner City Learning Center serves 70 students from first through eighth grades.
“Our students learn a strong work ethic while remaining focused on academics,” Callaway said. “We also offer a summer camp for kindergarten through fifth grade and a reading camp for kindergarten through third grade. Students experience sports, in-depth Bible study, nutritious meals, tutoring, mentoring and transportation to and from the center.”
The mission of Huntsville Inner City Learning Center is to offer an after-school program that builds strong spiritual, educational, and moral foundation for students in Huntsville’s inner city.
