Youth Enrichment

The Lowell Housing Authority is partnering with Kids In Tech, to bring Tech Club, an after-school enrichment program focused on technology to youth residing in the Lowell Housing Authority’s properties at North Common Village and Highland Parkway.

Kids in Tech is an innovative  nonprofit organization whose mission is to strive to excite, educate, and empower children to acquire skills and confidence in technology through interactive after school programs.

Their programs focus on helping kids develop the necessary tech skills and aptitudes to participate in and be future leaders of the 21st-century innovation economy.



The Lowell Youth Activities Program Scholarship

The Lowell Housing Authority’s nonprofit affiliate, the Lowell Youth Activities Program, Inc., is an IRS 501(c)(3) tax exempt 509(a)(1) public charity with the mission to educate, mentor and advance children within our Public Housing and Section 8 programs, as well as provide them access to both opportunities and experiences they could not otherwise afford. In many cases, it is very difficult for the families of these children to afford extracurricular activities, after-school programming and the pursuit of higher education. Through ongoing donor support, we are able to fund an academic-based After-School Program, a Summer Youth Recreation Program and award over $15,000 in college scholarships on an annual basis.

Each June, the Annual Scholarship Awards Reception is hosted at a local venue and our recipients are recognized for their academic accomplishments and future aspirations. This event has historically raised the majority of our funding and is essential to the long-term wellbeing of the program. We continually receive support from many local businesses, individuals, and agencies with one-hundred percent of revenue utilized to administer and further the efforts of this program.

Donations are welcome throughout the year. If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation, please contact [email protected]. Thank you for your support!
