Hazleton YMCA/YWCA helps Children Learn, Grow and Thrive All children have the potential to succeed in life and contribute to society. However, not all children get the support they need to thrive. The Y is committed to meeting these needs and others by providing programs and working together with community efforts such as Start Smart. Start Smart is a collaborative effort of the United Way of Greater Hazleton, public agencies, businesses and interested individuals. The

purpose is to collect school supplies and then distribute them to children identified by their school and United Way agencies. The hope is that by giving supplies, children may become motivated to invest in school and increase their learning capacity. To help meet the needs of children in our community, the Hazleton YMCA/YWCA will be having a July Membership promotion to increase the number of clear backpacks collected.

Recently Mystic Power Yoga, 103 Rotary Drive West Hazleton, Pa. 18202, had a very special guest to the studio, the UN Ambassador Ibiyinka Alao Nigeria's "Ambassador of Art". Ibiyinka shared his passion for art and love of music with the Mystic Power Yoga Community through a workshop titled "Visions of True Colors" . Those who attended enjoyed music, dancing and painting. “Ibiyinka is an amazing gifted  artist, we are so blessed to share this opportunity and experience with him, he is a true Ambassador of peace and an inspiration to ALL of us.” – Michele Fisher –Studio Owner. This event was well attended and open to the public. The suggested Donation for the event was $10.00 which  benefited the  Africa Yoga Project Organization.   A recent quote by Ibiyinka about his Painting: "I Draw, Paint and Write about whatever I'm able to find, feel and sometimes understand. I feel that it is healthier to look out at the world through a window than through a mirror. Otherwise, all you see is yourself and whatever is behind you". P
