Community Service

Last week, students in 3P and CCR-P from our daytime classes participated in University Settlement’s Meals on Wheels program, delivering food from 189 Allen St. (500 meals!) to those in need within the East Village area. We commend those students for their contribution in serving the community.

Workshop!

On Monday, November 15th, classes 3A and 3P (daytime) were treated to a workshop on the three branches of government presented by the Chinese Progressive Association. Our language learners always get more than just an education of English. Our program also provides regular workshops, such as this one, on topics related to the community and American culture as these are relevant to students’ lives.
