COOPERATIVE COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT PROGRAM (CCIP)

Consists of workshops and interventions to strengthen the role of parents in their child's education. We also represent parents as non-legal advocates in securing accommodations as stipulated in their 504 Plan and Individual Education Plan (IEP).

WORKFORCE EMPOWERMENT TRAINING (WET)

Our WET Program is designed to empower individuals through comprehensive training to increase the marketable skills of adults that are underemployed, unemployed or

seeking to upgrade their skills in order to earn a liveable wage. Through our certified Microsoft Partner, we can prepare and assist participants in obtaining their Microsoft Office Specialist Certification. We also have training programs in the real estate, cosmetology and construction field.

YOUTH EMPOWERMENT TRAINING (YEP)

Our academic programs provide supports that strengthen instruction in the classroom, assist with student preparedness from grades PreK-12, and promote post-secondary education. Our healthy youth initiatives promote choices for a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, working with our partners, we provide students leadership training to build their self-esteem, self-confidence and cultural awareness.
