Kingston High School
Harambee Kingston NY is pleased to announce its new “Lights On Kingston High School” program kicks off this Friday, June 11, 2021 from 6pm-10pm. Open to students enrolled in the Kingston city school district ages 13 and 18 years old, the program will offer activities such as Virtual Reality Gaming, Indoor and Outdoor Sports, Arts, Music/DJ Productions, Baking/Culinary, Weight Room, Photography, Financial Education, Sista To Sista Social Club, Open Gym, LGBTQ+ Social Club, Dance Club, Parent Social Club, and more. The program will run every Friday, throughout the year, with the exception of the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday weeks.
Participants will be fed a good dinner nightly, there will be laundry facilities available for those who need to wash their clothes, and childcare will be provided for participants who have children of their own or are tasked with caring for younger siblings.
Harambee CEO/Founder Tyrone Wilson sought the support of government and community leaders after young D’Janeira Mason died from a gunshot wound to the head after shots were fired into her home in what police have called “a targeted attack.” Modeled after “Lights On Newark High School West”, the program seeks to keep kids safe and engaged in fun educational and cultural activities under the supervision of caring adults.
To register for the program or for more information, email Tyrone at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (845) 334-5492.
Harambee partner organizations participating as activity leaders include, but are not limited to: Center for Creative Education, Kingston MidTown Arts District, My Kingston Kids, Seasoned Gives, Radio Kingston, My Brother’s Keeper, and more.
“Lights On Kingston High School” is made possible by generous support from Ulster County, the City of Kingston, the Kingston City School District, the United Way of Ulster County, and the Hannaford Charitable Foundation.
