Community Outreach Program
El Centro De Oportunidades
El Centro de Oportunidades strives to improve the qualityof life of families living in the area around Mount Saint Mary High School through education. Our focus is to provide English language training to Hispanic adults. We offer four eight-week sessions per year, with classes meeting three times per week in the evening. Over 60% of our students are females for whom we offer childcare during class hours and approximately half of the students per session have returned for further instruction. Our goal is to help the Hispanic community increase their English proficiency and help our families break the cycle of poverty. In partnership with Catholic Charities, we also offer Citizenship training for qualifying students wanting to become U.S. Citizens.
