TGP Happenings

August Event Spotlight:

Join Courtney Danner, Parent Educator, military spouse, and mom of four, for a discussion about supporting kids at school through a deployment.

How we discuss deployments can impact their school performance and behaviors in the classroom. Come learn the best practices to communicate with your child’s teacher before, during and after deployment to set your child up for success.

¡Únete a nosotros para practicar español!

Join us to practice English!

Spanglish Mixer is a fun way to get together with other English and Spanish learners to co-mingle and practice developing language skills! Participants will get a chance to use both English and Spanish conversation skills since the class will spend half of the time conversing and listening in each language.

The Georgetown Project is 25 years old! 

Thank you for supporting our work with children, youth and families. TGP was founded on the belief that we all have a role to play in the healthy development of young people in our community. And that when we work together toward a common purpose to help all youth thrive, good things happen for kids. 

Stay tuned for news on how we’ll be celebrating over the next few months!
