Today, as people around the world support important causes, donate to THJCA. Help us open our E-Learning Centers for children to come and learn in safe environment and have the education they deserve. Many of us have been impacted by the effects of Covid-19, including children. Many of THJCA's "at-risk" population are lower academic achievers, they and their families experience social and economic barriers, and some require emotional and behavioral support and therapy. Some are struggling with home based online learning and parents are finding it difficult to help the children when they don't have the experience or knowledge to assist.
THJCA has a plan! Our goal is to raise $500,000 to open two E-Learning Centers where students who are learning virtually will receive one on one academic support from teachers in a safe environment. The E-Learning centers will be housed in our existing THJCA Community Center and Early Education Center.

The Buffalo Soldiers in Tampa
Tampa Heights Junior Civic Association was awarded a grant from the Hillsborough County Arts Council to complete a project based on the history of the Buffalo Soldiers right here in Tampa, Florida! This project gave our youth participants exposure to their own history in an era when their generation feels far removed from their own past. This film teaches youth leadership skills through studying the past and performing arts while telling the rich story of the Buffalo Soldiers and its relevance to their own community. It teaches the youth today’s technology and production skills and it connects the older generations to today’s youth to foster better understanding of each other.
