Fred Rogers Center Announces New Community Outreach
LATROBE, PA – The Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media at Saint Vincent College was awarded a Remake Learning Grant from The Sprout Fund to support a new student-driven community outreach program.
Incubator 143, the student research and development lab at the Fred Rogers Center, recently launched the Neighborhood Music Visits program. The program provides young children with an opportunity to learn from Saint Vincent College student musicians through a “music visit” modeled after Fred Rogers’ visits with artists on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.
Designed to inspire wonder and encourage positive self-expression in children ages 1 to 8, a student “facilitator” and a student “performer” host a discovery experience to learn about the instrument, the performer, creative expression, learning challenges and constructive ways to manage feelings.View the press release (PDF)
