History Timeline

Out of a need to develop a culturally and academically rich summer program for children found Heritage Education Group (HEG) 2001.  It's flagship program, the Heritage Camp, provided an unparalleled experience for 2nd-6th-grade students on the campus of California State University Pomona. This program offered classes in math, reading readiness, yoga, etiquette, Knowledge of Self (history) and health education. 

Expanding its commitment to children and their communities, HEG aggressively launched a series of community programs (Trips For Kids Heritage Bike Rides, Photo-voice), refocusing its original charge of enriching lives through education, public
health and art.
