George Washington Carver Center of Norwalk, CT
Mission: The George Washington Carver Community Center fosters positive development of the whole child, and serves families and the community by providing educational, social, cultural and recreational programs. We believe that every child can succeed in school and at work, and grow into well-rounded citizens who will have a positive impact on the community. We encourage the involvement of parents and community leaders to help motivate children to reach their full potential. Our after school programs support children in grades k-12, but our main focus is our Youth Development Program. Geared at motivating and supporting the college dreams of at-risk students, the YDP has a 100% high school graduation rate; 85% continue onto college or post-secondary education, and 66% earn a degree or certificate!
