Leadership & Learning Program

It is highly recommended that “access to culturally sensitive assessment and treatment services be available to ensure transition to a healthy adulthood."

Cleary, Dietz-Chavez, et al., 2017

We strongly believe that the trend of poor academic achievement for students for whom English is their second language can be reversed, and that all students can master academic standards if they are given time, support and instruction that focuses on their academic needs. With that in mind, the COH offers the following programs

Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM at Maryland Hall

Wednesdays from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Center of Help

The Leadership and Learning Program incorporates Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STREAM) using the Motivation Education curriculum which emphasizes engaging multiple intelligences and hands-on learning.
