Programs

We provide our children with a safe haven after school and the opportunity to achieve stability, self-sufficiency, self esteem and hope for the future.”

--Margaret Grundman, Adventures in Learning Founder

For 40 years, Adventures in Learning has offered children in kindergarten through sixth grade a place to come after school for guidance with homework. Today, the program offers this and much more.  Through all these years, Adventures in Learning has served hundreds of local children, making a difference in the lives of young people who would otherwise be without assistance during a critical time in their development. 

We are blessed with many volunteers who play a significant role in delivering our program. Many of them are retired teachers, graduate students, college students, high school honor students, and wonderful caring adults who offer so much to help our children.  We have also been fortunate to receive funding from the Congregational Church of Manhasset, and from Chris and Traci Quackenbush’s Jacob Marley Foundation.

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.
