Youth & Young Adult Programming
Carver Center’s mission, “to build brighter futures by serving, educating, and empowering families in our community”, drives Carver’s Youth & Young Adult Programming to cultivate the next generation of self-directed learners and young adults.
Children and teens are served through our after school programs, teen center, and scholarship programming. These programs aim to provide young people with positive role models, and expanded opportunities for growth and development.
After School – Elementary School: Through a collaboration with the Port Chester School District, Carver Center is operating a robust after school program at Port Chester’s four elementary schools. Daily meals, homework help, recreation, and enrichment activities help support our children through these critical developmental years.
Carver Scholarships: Our scholarship program recognizes academic achievement and participation in the Four Pillars of Teen Center Programming: Personal Growth and Life Skills; Academic Achievement; Leadership; Enrichment. High school seniors and Teen Center Alumni are encouraged to apply each year.
Teen Center: Our teens develop the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in high school, college and career. Teens are immersed in a structured program where they receive academic support and career preparation, one-one-mentoring, access to specialized workshops, and leadership development sessions. Daily meals, recreational outlets and social activities are part of the programming, and once with us, our teens can take full advantage of our innovative Makerspace lab, music studio and fitness space.
