Education & Youth Development

No matter how old you are, education helps you succeed. CAMBA provides a range of programs to serve you and enhance your education. We’ll help you find a summer job or internship, explore colleges or careers, learn English, or earn your high school diploma. We’ll help you start and pursue your education journey.

If you are an immigrant or non-native speaker, we offer English classes and instruction in reading, listening, writing and numeracy skills. We also help adult learners with preparation for high school equivalency exams, adult basic education, computer literacy and civics courses.

For elementary and middle school youth, CAMBA summer camp and after-school programs provide homework help, recreation, enrichment, and learning clubs. If you’re in high school or not currently in school, our programs can help you earn your diploma, prepare for college, or get ready for a career. CAMBA’s young adult support programs also include teen pregnancy prevention and counseling about consent, sexual assault, and intimate partner violence.
