  •  By Peter Becker Managing Editor Volunteers are needed to help with an after-school program being started at the Wallenpaupack North Intermediate School and Middle School. The program, called the Rowland Youth Club, is being conducted privately by Mrs. Dorean Davis with permission of school officials to use the school facilities. With volunteer help, she hopes to offer help with homework, music, art, dancing and sewing instruction. The program is entirely free to students and will be offered twice a week, on Tuesday from 2:39 to 5:30 p.m. and Thursday from 2:40 to 5:30 p.m. She said this was important, to help our children. Some will go home to an empty home because parents are working. The after school club will allow additional educational opportunities and a means to encourage the youth to not get into trouble, she stated. “Rowland” refers to Rowland, North Carolina, where she used to coordinate a similar program. The Lackawaxen Township resident said she eventually would like to have her own facility and expand on available after-school programs. With adequate assistance, she said she would to expand to the high school, and have speakers tall about such issues as drugs and alcohol and teenage pregnancies. Classes will be conducted by qualified indiviudals and with parental consent. Field trips are another possibility, in the future. For more information or to volunteer, call her at (570)470-5763.
