Service Description: Community Education provides before and after school care for more than 1,200 school age children and youth on school days and for as many as 500 children during all-day programs, offered during school breaks. Our Enrichment classes for adults cover a wide variety of subjects including foreign language, cooking, fine arts (art, dance, music), crafts, computer, fitness and recreation, finance, on-line classes and more. We train volunteers to go into schools to read to children, help tutor them, and other activities. We also help place volunteers in the community in conjunction with the newly formed ALIVE Center. We work very closely with Volunteers in Action to "train the trainers" who work with volunteers in a variety of agencies and organizations. It is our charge to facilitate community collaboration and to provide needed services at low cost to community members
