Our mission

Adventures in Learning is an after-school educational and enrichment program dedicated to improving the lives of Long Island children in need of after-school care and instruction. Housed in the Hagedorn Community Center at the Manhasset/Great Neck EOC, Adventures provides a warm and caring environment where children develop homework skills while benefiting from computer instruction, literary and math programs, and cultural activities.

Focus Programs

Nutrition is an important part of Adventures in Learning’s instruction.  The program was created to give children an opportunity to try, taste, choose, incorporate and eat healthier food choices at meals and snack times. 

The purpose of this program is to address the needs of our English Language Learners (ELL) by providing an English as a New Language (ENL) program within the Adventures in Learning after school program.

The film Workshop is a class that teaches children how to tell their own stories. This class focuses on understating, writing and organizing their own stories; learning Lightning, Camera theory and editing on the basic level. The hope is to give them creative way to express their thoughts through story telling.

The Early Childhood Reading Program administered by three reading specialists, is modeled on professional tutoring programs shown to be highly effective for improving reading outcomes.

Our math specialist addresses the increasing needs of math instruction for our entire student body.  Ensuring the development of mathematics competence during the primary grades is essential to later learning success.

Concert for Charity

Congregational Church June 8th

The Wineskins draw from the deep literary and musical influences that have shaped the band’s sound. From Jim Harrison and Larry Brown, to Bread and Fleetwood Mac. Having grown up in Mississippi, songwriters W. Keith Moore and Jeff Gordon have created a wealth of material born from the darkness and light of the world they live in. Moore and Gordon wrestle with their spirituality, and offer an honest take on the struggle. The Wineskins are dedicated to creating musical experiences that stay with you, with lyrics and melodies that are haunting and memorable. Take a walk with these storytellers.
