Helping Underprivileged Youth at Oakland Community Centers

We have on display at the Osage City Public Library a poster of a project “Helping Underprivileged Youth at Oakland Community Centers” completed by Emma Schemm, Kristen Stinett and Wyatt Robinett, all Washburn University students. Emma and Wyatt are former graduates from Osage City High School.

Helping Underprivileged Youth at Oakland Community Centers is an after school program which provides a supportive, safe environment where kids can be kids while receiving positive encouragement to succeed both academically and personally.

The after school program at Oakland Community Center is a part of Washburn’s Literacy Education Action Project (LEAP). The Oakland program helps Students with homework problems, aiding students in reading, filling gaps in the general curriculum, and reinforces the importance of a strong education. They emphasize the importance of independent and critical thinking and see every situation as a learning opportunity.

This program is very important to the Oakland Community, because many of the parents work two jobs. The parents can be assured that their child is learning, is safe, and is having fun in an environment with positive role models and mentors.

It also has been a learning experience for the volunteer Washburn Students. The Washburn Students have not only learned patience and understanding, but also have learned about the many problems that are faced by communities. Oakland is a diverse neighborhood, with most of the population coming from a lower economic background. As the Washburn Students work with these children, they hope to better learn how to nurture that uniqueness, and hopefully make a meaningful impact on the children.

Visit the library to learn more about this project.

Small Business Resource Center

Have a business or thinking of starting a business? Then check out Small Business Resource Center.

Download startup kits (with pre-made Excel files), watch Harvard Business School lecture videos, and read up on business basics (including human resources). The article search also lets you limit to “forms” – so if you are a landlord, for example, and need a sample lease agreement, it is easy to pull up.
