CAMBA programs provide thousands of low income youth from pre-school through high school with academic assistance, counseling, tutoring, art, drama, music, sports, SAT and Regents help, opportunities to serve their community, internships and employment. CAMBA encourages older youth who are disconnected from either school or work to further their education and employment opportunities and serve their community. We look to measure results not just from a single test but from skills learned.

CAMBA has great strength in working with school principals and staff and its recent work has evolved to deeper partnerships where the agency is involved in wider aspects of school operation.

CAMBA recognizes that education is also a critical aspect for adults seeking to achieve self-sufficiency and success for themselves and their families. To address this need, CAMBA serves individuals at all learning stages, from those who don't speak English and are not literate in their native language to those who are seeking a GED as a step towards pursuing a college education.
