Upcoming Programs

We are excited to announce a new program promoting positive youth development in Mount Horeb supported in part by Dane County Department of Human Services. This program is academic assistance focused and will operate during after school hours on school days starting in January 2022. The program will also facilitate leadership activities for grades 5 through High School youth on non-school days. Volunteers are needed on weekdays after school and can include high school students, college age students, adults, retirees, teachers, parents and more.

General Program Information

Although MHCEC offers programs and activities for all ages, some specific programming may be limited to community members of certain ages. We strictly follow the current Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) guidelines for in person programs and activities. These may include limited group size, requiring face masks, social distancing and cleaning/sanitizing between groups. In person participating community members and volunteers must be registered in advance, and attendance is taken upon arrival. 

Program Location

MHCEC programs and activities are located in and around MHASD schools, and other community facilities including parks.  

Participation Fees

Participation fees for all programs is by suggested donation only, therefore, no participant will be denied access to MHCEC programs or activities based on their ability to pay. We encourage participants to adjust their suggested donation amount, as needed or desired, in order to meet their own needs, or in order to help another participant. Sponsorship donations for community members who are not able to donate are encouraged and welcomed. SUPPORT MHCEC PROGRAMS

Programs and Activities

Our efforts are designed to support and respond to identified needs and impacts of COVID 19 to our local community, specifically residents of the Mount Horeb Area School District. Identified needs include academic assistance, tutoring/mentoring, physical and mental wellness, and social connections.

Can You Help?

MHCEC is a privately insured, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is funded, managed and operated by county funding, donations and volunteers. All donations are tax deductible and all adult volunteers are screened and have completed and passed a background check.

High school volunteers can earn silver cord hours for time they spend leading and assisting younger students and community members in a variety of ways. Adult volunteers may be parents, retirees, college students, veterans, grandparents, business community members, and more. All are welcome!

If you or someone you know can help, please go to our Get Involved page and make a donation or complete the VOLUNTEER SURVEY. Thank you for your support!

Beyond COVID-19

Our initial focus is to assist students, their families and the community, with programs and activities that provide immediate support and resources during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are committed to evolving to meet additional needs of the community as they arise and well into the future. We would love to hear your ideas for future programming.
