Youth Program

The Youth Programs within CCCF was created to meet the specific needs of New York City youth between the ages of six to eighteen. Our Youth Programs assists youth, especially new immigrants, in their transition into the community through academic tutoring, English enrichment and other valuable social enrichment activities. Our dedicated team of staff also serve as mentors to help cultivate the character and to promote the self-image of our students. Through our cultural programs, educational seminars and parenting support groups, youth and parents also learn to interact and communicate more effectively with each other.
