Generating Positive Outcomes

For many students, school can be a daily challenge. For low-income or new immigrant students, those challenges often prove daunting; for some, there’s no one at home to help with school work, while for others, there are language and cultural barriers to overcome. Many also deal with personal and family issues that make it difficult to focus on their studies. This leads disadvantaged students to believe that they can’t be successful at school – or life.

Neighborhood House serves as an important force in the lives of Portland-area youth and their families. Our highly regarded school-based programs promote educational success and family involvement for disadvantaged students, providing culturally competent content thanks to our committed and multicultural staff.

Summer Camp Was a Big Hit!

Six Weeks of Summer Fun!

It was another summer of fun and learning during the School Age program’s Summer Camp. The program featured a new theme each week where students in grades K-5 learned about nature, animals, culture, history, science, and much more.

Each week featured fun field trips to local parks and museums, such as the Oregon History Society and the Oregon Zoo. During Time Travel week, a fossil expert brought various artifacts for students to interact with. Week four’s theme was Superheroes where students were able to meet some of Portland’s local heroes, the Portland Fire and Rescue.  

The final week brought the program to a fun close with a trip to the pool, where students could cool off and enjoy the summer sun, leaving long lasting memories that would make any parent jealous.

The Connect Program at Stephens Creek Crossing

Our Connect Program serves second through fifth-graders who have been referred by their teachers because they need extra academic and/or social-emotional support.

State-qualified teachers and teacher assistants provide 90 minutes of extra academic support twice weekly through project-based activities focusing on math and literacy. Teaching assistants also provide an additional third day of optional programming, usually in the arts, culture, meditation, life skills and social studies.

The program also offers quarterly field trips, and parents are invited to attend quarterly family nights. These evenings showcase students’ work and provide an opportunity for parents and teachers to socialize in a safe, supportive environment.

Grauer Back to School Project

Neighborhood House partners with St. Luke Lutheran Church and other community members to provide school supplies and clothing to low-income students in the Ida B. Wells High School boundaries.
