Hyde Park Neighborhood Club (HPNC) is a small, hyper-local community-based organization that, before the pandemic, provided after-school care and enrichment to children living on the South Side of Chicago. During the pandemic, HPNC created a learning pod for children in grades K–8 to provide parents in the community with childcare and students with online learning support. HPNC staff supervised students' online learning and provided social experiences that were designed to mimic those that students would experience in school in a normal year.
