Hopewell Music Cooperative North is collaborating with North United Methodist Church to create a Community Youth Center. The Youth Center will be open after school between the hours of 3-8, and will be available for any youth in the community to use — not just Hopewell students or youth connected with the church. The Youth Center will have recording equipment, computers, and industry-standard music editing software with which students can record and produce music. This space will also be a homework space, with tables where students can receive homework help from tutors. Additionally, the Youth Center will also have art supplies and materials so that the students may have the opportunity to be creative. Ideally, we would be able to provide access to a 3D printer, laser engraver, and screen printer. All of these resources will encourage creativity, foster community, and support education.
