Cambria Re-Coal-lections

Educational Workshop Component

CCHYC has an established after school and summer enrichment curriculum entitled “Cambria Re-Coal-lections”, which stress the interrelatedness of various artistic disciplines with the region’s historic dependency on a single industry, coal mining.  To date, twenty-seven such workshops have been offered, serving approximately 1000+ children. There is an educational imperative for this project.  It is of importance to the formation of the USA.  This “highway” opened up the western part of PA to settlement and the fact that it runs through Cambria County is important for our students to know.  They need to know what is in their own neighborhood.  The list of past and current workshops is HERE.
