The Hope Centre of Learning is part of Carea Community Health Centre, and is located in the Dr. Bryce A. Brown Wellness Centre and the Oshawa Senior Citizens Centre, Conant Branch.  Situated in the south end of Oshawa and overlooking the Oshawa Creek the Hope Centre embraces; inclusion, hope and investing in today, so we all have a better tomorrow.   The Hope Centre of Learning is the dream of Dan and Paula Carter.   The objective of the Hope Centre of Learning is to enhance people’s opportunity for learning.  It was created to encompass new technologies and expand knowledge and growth.  The Hope Centre of Learning was built on the belief that we can do more, be more, and help more, when we learn more. 

Several iMac computers have been provided in the effort to encourage and improve computer skills.  The H.E.A.R.T. program Homework, Education, Activity & Reading Together was developed to improve children’s literacy skills and runs in the Hope Centre of Learning.  The program focuses on children in Grades 1-6.  A youth leadership program also runs in the Hope Centre.  This program teaches and develops leadership skills that will benefit our youth as they move forward with their lives.   Afterschool snacks are provided in our programs since you can’t learn on an empty stomach!

The Hope Centre of Learning encompasses all generations as it is also used by the Oshawa Senior Citizens Centre staff during the day for Alzheimer caregiver relief where arts, crafts and exercise are part of the program.  

The Hope Centre of Learning is a place where dreams start, respect is shown, success is encouraged, and where people are inspired to believe that anything is possible.  Most importantly it is a place where hope will always be cultivated.  

Also present in the room is a plaque recognizing the students that have received the Isobel Carter Youth Education Award.  Each year the names of the recipients are proudly added to the plaque.  We are also very proud of the Wall of Hope Partners where we honour those individuals and companies that have helped us see the reality of our dream.

We are proud of the fact that the Hope Centre of Learning offers a unique space for people to learn, play and be motivated and inspired to reach for the stars.  We ask you to join our vision that everyone is entitled to start each day with hope.
