The Learning Lab provides children and adolescents with an inclusive space to learn in a secular setting about what it means to be a moral citizen. Our goal is to create a safe environment for youth to explore their identities as critical thinkers and as compassionate, community-minded participants in our diverse world.

We will be focusing on teaching our students the 2014-2015_HCH Learning Lab Curriculum, designed by experts in pedagogy and specifically created for HCH Learning Lab.

If you want to get involved in this project in anyway, or just want to put in your two cents, please email Sarah Chandonnet at

Please donate to our program! Our program relies entirely on your donations.
