Duquesne Students to Present Hazelwood Community Initiatives

Students in a Duquesne University Honors College class will present the fruits of their service-learning labor to the Hazelwood community, where they have studied and worked in the past semester.

Eighteen students in the class of Dr. Evan Stoddard, associate dean of the McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts, focused on contributing to two youth-oriented programs:

  • Helping to recruit volunteers for Amachi, a mentoring program for elementary- to middle-school students whose parents are incarcerated
  • Creating an outdoor classroom at the Hazelwood YMCA, a branch of the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh.

The students will discuss their findings about the Hazelwood community and their work at the presentation.

When: Wednesday, May 5 at noon

Where: The outdoor classroom of the Hazelwood YMCA, 4713 Chatsworth Ave.
