Milton Hershey School to Host Fourth Poverty Talk Livestream Conversation
Houseparenting is a unique and rewarding career where married couples provide Milton Hershey School students a structured, caring home away from home. Houseparents teach life skills that help students from poverty build character while also encouraging success socially and academically. Their role is a continuation of our founders’ mission—to educate and nurture children in social and financial need to lead fulfilling and productive lives.
On Wednesday, April 27 at noon, Lisa Scullin, MHS Vice President of Communications will host the fourth conversation in our Poverty Talks livestream series focusing on the impactful role and rewarding career houseparenting offers. You’ll hear from MHS thought leaders on our mission and how we help break the cycle of poverty for our students through a robust Home Life and academic program.
Childhood poverty is a national crisis in America. When Milton and Catherine Hershey founded a home and school for orphans in 1909, they understood that in order to lead fulfilling and successful lives, children need their basic needs met like food, clothing, medical care, and a stable home environment. Today, Milton Hershey School’s whole child approach to education has changed the lives of thousands of students and alumni.
