Hilltown Families on Mass Appeal: Community-Based Learning in Late Summer
Hilltown Families and Mass Appeal (a weekday, hour-long lifestyle program on NBC) have teamed up to offer a live monthly segment on WWLP 22News! Each month, community-based education specialist and Hilltown Families’ Founder, Sienna Wildfield, joins Mass Appeal hosts to talk about ways to engage in your community while supporting the interests and education of your children (and yourselves!).
This monthly segment continued on Monday, August 27, 2018 with Sienna and Danny talking about late summer resources and opportunities that support learning through community-based education.
For more information and links to resources mentioned in this segment, check out our recent post, Supporting Seasonal Learning in the Late Summer with Community-Based Educational Resources & Opportunities.
Our New After-School Classes & Enrichment Programs Directory is Here!
Our community is rich in learning opportunities to supplement the interests of children, teens, and life-long learners. We have put together a directory of after-school & weekend classes and enrichment programs happening across Western Massachusetts throughout the school year. Many of these programs aren’t just for kids, so to all the adults out there – feel encouraged to pursue your interests and honor your callings through these enrichment classes, too!
