Berlin Family Foundation Education and Enrichment Center
Berlin Enrichment Center
The Berlin Family Foundation Education and Enrichment Center will play an essential role in ensuring the children and youth at Place of Hope are given the keys to create a successful future. The center will be home to a computer lab, library, music lounge, mentoring & tutoring room and style and beauty lounge. Place of Hope is so thankful for the Berlin Family Foundation and their vision to create this space for those that call Place of Hope home.
The Covell Family Multi-Purpose Training Lab will have tables and chairs set in a classroom style. There will be a TV and podium located at the front of the room. Our kids will be able to experience life-skills classes here, such as: budgeting, resume building and interview coaching.
The Wyatt Koch Communications Learning Lab will be an area where the kids are able receive one-on-one training in a smaller environment. This room will be set in a lounge style, offering a comfortable place for them to receive lessons on communications and life-skills. It will also be a space that is available to host meetings.
Our library will give the children in our care access to a variety of books that will help them in their academics. They will be able to come in after school, or on the weekends, to grab a book and have an environment they can read in.
The tutoring & mentoring center will allow our children to receive tutoring and mentoring in an environment that is comfortable for them. This will offer space, outside of the Family Cottages, that volunteers can come in and help our kids with their school work or consistent mentoring visits.
The James and Claudine Kirkwood Fund of the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties Music Room will be a creative space for our kids to express themselves! There will be multiple guitars, a piano and music stands. We encourage our kids to pursue their passion and drive in life. For those that find comfort in music, this will give them the opportunity to express that.
Our multi-purpose room will be home to a style and beauty lounge that will offer haircuts to our kids! Joe, at Barbers Edge, has been graciously donating his services, and time, and we are so excited to move him into a more permanent location.
The Berlin Family Foundation Computer Lab will have 10 computers available. With our world becoming more and more digital, we want to ensure our kids are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need. The lab will have a monitor at the front of the classroom that will allow for someone to come in and teach them things they may need to know.
