Staff report


The Ebony Ladies Golf and Youth Foundation is announcing the availability of a summer Educational Enrichment Program, a twice-a-week camp experience offered to 50 Youngstown children free of charge.

The enrichment program runs for eight weeks this summer, beginning Tuesday and ending Aug. 8.

Neighborhood organizations the Needle’s Eye, Ebony Ladies Golf and Youth Foundation, Grow Youngstown, Best Art, UMOJA and the Associated Neighborhood Center have come together to offer a well-rounded camp experience that will include golf lessons, art classes, gardening, reading comprehension and tutoring, nutrition and physical fitness.

Children also will go on educational field trips.

The program aims to challenge participants physically and mentally while teaching important skills for daily life.

To sign up children for the program, contact Samantha Turner at 330-559-6679 or email her at ssturner03@gmx.com.

The Summer Educational Enrichment Program was made possible by the Raymond John Wean Foundation, the Young Philanthropist Fund and the Youngstown Community Initiative to Reduce Violence.
