Parents get good look at new Phelps Helps locale
Phelps Aide Phelps Helps held its Open House, last Thursday, at their new location at the corner of Dufferin and Notre-Dame streets in the building formerly known as the ‘corner gallery’. “Parents and even grandparents, some community members and some students came by to see the new space and ask questions about the program,” said Clea Corman, Operations Manager. The visitors could also find out about the other programs offered by Phelps Helps, besides their high school tutoring program, such as the Elementary Homework Program, the Elementary Educational Program, the Summer Program and the Mentoring Program. Those who couldn’t make it to the open house can find out about these enriching and free programs on the Phleps Helps website.
“Gabriel and I are very happy to be able to give the Phelps Helps program a free and beautiful location. We believe that education is the key to the future of our youth in Stanstead. In the future we can imagine a technical school where the young people can learn technical skills and not have to leave town,” commented Eva Juul, the owner of the building along with Gabriel Safdie. The couple has promised five years of free rent to the program.
During the Open House, the students in the program got a reprieve from their studies to carry out a team challenge. Donuts, snacks and refreshments were served to everyone from the building’s spacious kitchen.
