The CAMBA Adult Literacy Center held its fifth biannual Recognition Ceremony in the evening of May 25th, 2017, to honor the strides made by the program's adult learners during this current fiscal year.
More than 100 family members, friends, CAMBA staff, and fellow students gathered in the Flatbush Dutch Reformed Church to celebrate the success and achievements of the center’s English learners, High School Equivalency test preparation students, and its recent High School Equivalency Diploma recipients. Teachers took to the stage throughout the evening to recognize their students and hand out special honors to those who have stood out among their peers by their accomplishments and performance in and out of the classroom, often in the face of personal and family adversity.
The CAMBA Adult Literacy Center serves almost 1,000 adults each year in the Flatbush and East Flatbush communities. Beyond English and literacy, the center's classes include math, civics, U.S. history, and computer-assisted technology training. All classes are free and taught by professional instructors.
