With our Mitney donors’ help, kids discover new heights to which they can ascend. During Mitney’s Summer FUN-tensive, campers rose to the occasion. A special thank you to Mr. Dan Drost, The Georgetown Air Terminal and the EAA Young Eagles Program for helping our children earn their wings!

Summer Chat Sessions

Posted by on September 27, 2017 with 0 Comments

Mitney’s BOOST Program offers participants the opportunity to learn new workforce skills and be introduced to industries where those skills are utilized. One way of introducing them to these fields is the “Chat” sessions in which they meet with and discuss work with professionals working in these industries.  This summer, the TECH campers received a visit from City of Georgetown Police Chief Kelvin Waites (top photo, left), Officer Burbage (bottom photo, bottom right) and Horry County Police Officer Jeff Hamilton (bottom photo, standing left) who talked to the children about leadership, responsibility and the use of computer programming and robotics in law enforcement. Many thanks to Chief Waites and Officers Burbage and Hamilton for spending time with these young people!

One of the most thrilling days at the STEM camp offered by Grand Strand Tech Council (GSTC) at Mitney Center this summer included a presentation on augmented reality. The campers enjoyed learning how superimpose 3D images like dragons and tennis shoes on their actual surroundings.  The presentation was facilitated by GSTC Executive Director Jason Green (black tshirt) and Tech Ambassador Michael Siek (standing, black suit).

New adventures

Posted by on June 7, 2017 with 0 Comments

In April 2017, Mitney kids were among the first to “see” the steppes of Mongolia and hear the Kazakh language spoken in Georgetown. Thanks to the Strand Theater and Film Literacy Youth Project, the children attended a screening of the critically acclaimed film “The Eagle Huntress” at the Strand and participated in pre- and post-screening discussions with a Mitney mentor about identity, self-determination and gender roles in society. Thanks to Mitney donors, the children had a healthy and delicious light meal prior to the show and comfortable transportation to and from the theater. Thank you!
