Adult Programs

CITIZENSHIP:  Approximately 45% of Port Chester residents were born outside of the United States of America, with 90% arriving from Latin American countries. Carver provides an 8-week citizenship program to help immigrants study and prepare for their citizenship examinations to attain U.S. citizenship. To-date, Carver has graduated over 200 new U.S. citizens from the program.

ENGLISH CLASSES:  Adults learn English language in a nurturing environment that supports risk-taking and yields exceptional results.  Our evening classes have helped those struggling with issues of acculturation and communication within the larger community.

WELLNESS:  A healthy mind, body and spirit is at the heart of Carver’s Counseling and Fitness Center offerings.  Helping to reduce the effects of stress caused by life’s challenges remains at the heart of building brighter futures.
