HEER – Education

The EDUCATION Committee of the Metropolitan Philadelphia Area Chapter (MPAC) works to enhance the educational experiences and outcomes for children in Philadelphia and surrounding areas. 

The committee’s GOALS are to continue to develop literacy goals, support, increase and sustain parental engagement in our youth, schools, activities and educational progress. We will support the efforts of implementing life skills curriculum in the after-school program that cultivate healthy and active lifestyles activities.

This year we will introduce the birth of:

Black Girl Magic & Black Boy Joy Encouragement Boxes

These boxes will include affirmations cards, positive notes, journals, goodie bags, small articles of clothing and books in an effort to encourage student retention, high self – esteem, and a commitment to striving for academic excellence. 

The MPAC sisters will make donations and foster mentorship to encourage positive outcomes with the students this academic school year.
