English to Work

CAMBA’s English to Work Program provides low-income English language learners with English language instruction and concurrent job training. The vast majority of our students lack a high school diploma, yet most jobs that pay family-sustaining wages require education/training beyond a high school diploma. Understandably, most of our clients cannot afford college tuition or the fees charged by local job training programs.

To meet these needs, the English to Work Program combines CAMBA’s Adult Basic Education and English language learning coursework, with training in food handling and preparation at Kingsborough Community College. Enrolled participants are not required to pay any of the fees and expenses generally associated with these programs. Over the course of a 10-week program, CAMBA offers English instruction four days a week and Kingsborough Community College provides a once-a-week Food Handling training at the CAMBA Education Center.

At the end of the training, participants will take the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene exam to earn a New York City Food Protection Certificate. CAMBA Case Managers provide resume preparation, cover letter writing, interview practice, and job referral assistance to program participants.
