There’s a New After School Program for Teens Coming to Ellwood City!
EnCompass Point is a non-profit after school program offered Monday – Friday to teens ages 12 to 16 and it’s coming to Ellwood City. The program will offer teenagers a safe place be while parents are still at work. EnCompass Point has signed a lease with The Time’s Square (Walnut Ridge Elementary School) for the 2015-2016 school year. Chamber of Commerce Director Caroline Golmic explains, “It is crucial to focus on this age group because it is a time when kids are becoming teenagers and deciding the direction they will take in school, in choosing friends, and in developing hobbies. For some teenagers, this will be a great opportunity to feel supported and encouraged on their way to becoming healthy adults. I truly feel this will be a light for our community!”
In support of EnCompass Point, Caroline and her husband Scott will be running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon (13.1 miles) on May 3, 2015. Funds raised will be used to launch the EnCompass Point program in Ellwood City.

Or you can send a check, made payable to EnCompass Point, Inc., to Caroline Golmic at 300 Pershing Street, Ellwood City, PA 16117. Please write “Caroline Golmic-Marathon” in the memo line.
EnCompass Point will be looking for members of the community to volunteer their time and skills once the school year has begun. If you are interested in learning more, contact Caroline at firstname.lastname@example.org.
