The ArtsAltoona Center is proud to be called home by a number of other organizations.
Brian Morden Foundation
The Brian Morden Foundation was created to honor Brian, a courageous 19 year old, who battled Ewing’s Sarcoma for more than two years. He lost the battle on February 15, 2003, but his family, friends, and many others who only knew Brian by reputation have vowed to continue the fight against this horrible disease.
AASD Adult Education Program
The Altoona Area School District's Community Education Center was established in 1969. For over 50 years, the Center has provided adult educational opportunities in Blair County.
The program is contracted to serve adult students annually through funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The Altoona Area School District offers free adult education classes for adult learners participating in adult basic education (ABE), GED, and preparing for post-secondary studies.
ArtsAltoona Learning Pods
ArtsAltoona offers a new type of space for students to complete their distance learning. Middle and Elementary School students will complete assignments in a socially-distanced, clean, and supervised learning “pod,” in our facilities. Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, school districts have struggled to maintain adequate social distancing, between their students. As a result, many districts have turned to virtual environments in order to maintain the safety and well-being of their students. In a virtual environment, students still attend class every day, on a regular schedule. However, instead of sitting in a classroom at a desk, students sit at home on a computer. This leaves many parents struggling to shuffle work schedules and/or finding sitters to watch over their children. Enter learning pods.
Simpson-Temple United Parish
Simpson-Temple United Parish is a Lutheran-United Methodist Church hybrid congregation who has been serving with the community together since 1951. Simpson-Temple is one congregation accountable to both denominations with their theology and teachings.
Allegheny Ukulele Kollective
The Allegheny Ukulele Kollective is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening public access to, knowledge of, and enjoyment of music by offering experiences that celebrate all things ukulele.
We're a Ukulele enthusiast club based in the Altoona-State College, PA region. The Allegheny Ukes have existed in various incarnations since 2010 where we jammed on college campuses, the local YMCA, and in cafes.
