Horizons For Youth extends its reach through partnerships in the community. We offer meeting space and other resources to non-profit organizations benefitting the families of the Lehigh Valley.
Horizons for Youth partners with Black Rocket to provide additional technology and design programs for students in grades 4-9! "The magic in every camper comes to life as never before when they are empowered to be as creative as they were all born to be! Black Rocket has over a decade of experience designing camps in Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM) and Digital Arts, (STEAM). Every program is powered by the camper's innate imagination and designed to bring their ideas to life in a fun, hands-on, learning environment. All Black Rocket programs mirror real life experiences and the collaborative nature of the design process. All student work is saved on a private, password protected website which is available to students after the class.
