Welcome to the Hazleton Integration Project

The Hazleton Integration Project is a community-based effort that seeks to unite the people of many different cultures who now call Hazleton home. The project is the brainchild of Hazleton native and Chicago Cubs Manager Joe Maddon, who has been named Manager of the Year three times and who recently managed the Cubs to their first World Series tittle since 1908. 

Maddon and HIP leaders believe that diversity can be a city’s greatest strength and through interacting with different cultural groups we develop a greater understanding of our common humanity while learning to appreciate our cultural similarities and differences. 

For our efforts the Hazleton Integration Project was awarded the 2014 Human & Civil Rights Award from the Pennsylvania State Education Association.
