Neighborhood School Centers
Service Learning and Volunteering Opportunities at Dayton's Neighborhood School Centers
In 2004, the Fitz Center was selected to design the concept and build partnerships for five Neighborhood School Centers, a major initiative of the Dayton Foundation and the Dayton Public Schools. This initiative strives to encourage parent and neighborhood participation in learning, increase program resources through community partnerships, and improve the neighborhoods surrounding the schools. The Fitz Center is working to secure long-term relationships among public and private organizations for each Neighborhood School Center in order to assure the continuation of the project benefits and strengthen schools and neighborhoods. The five elementary schools and partners are Kiser PK-8 and the Salvation Army; Edison PJ-8 and the YMCA of Greater Dayton; Fairview PH-8 at Fairview Commons and Unified Health Solutions; Cleveland PK-8 and the YMCA of Greater Dayton; and Ruskin PK-8 and East End Community Services.
