We take group pictures with classmates on the last day of school year, our party day. The pandemic made it impossible for us to get together physically for a party, yet it couldn’t stop us from taking group pictures virtually.
Here are more photos from Albany. Our students went to the state capital last week with other members of the New York City Coalition for Adult Literacy (NYCCAL) to advocate for $25 million in funding for Adult Literacy Education in New York State. We held a rally on the Million Dollar staircase, where in addition to Senator Jessica Ramos and Assembly Members Ron Kim and Pat Fahy, our very own Adult Literacy Program students Lifen and Jose spoke about how important programs like ours are. After the rally we visited state assembly members’ and senators’ offices and to tell them why adult literacy programs need more funding in New York.
Recently our Culture Club students took a trip to the Houston Street Center to view the Creative Center’s Got Art! exhibit. They had an art-focused workshop led by Creative Center Director Robin Glazer and got to take a work of art home!
