Program Overview

CREC's Transition to Employment Services provides classes in English for speakers of other languages.

Intermediate-level students participate in a volunteer internship to practice their English skills in a professional work environment.

Family Literacy Porgram/Raising Readers - Literacy in the home and parent involvement in school-related activities has a significant impact on the academic success of children. In homes where reading materials are plentiful and children are read to, children are more likely to stay in school and go on to higher education and higher
earning careers. The Raising Readers workshop helps promote a love of reading and learning in students and their families, while also exploring strategies that are proven to extend home learning to support children's achievements.
