The Queens Center serves Bucharan immigrant youth while the Brooklyn centers serve Soviet Union immigrant youth and other low-income youth, for a total of more than 200 students each year.
The Learning Centers have received excellent results. Sixty percent of participants at the Queens site and 72% at one of the Brooklyn sites increased their mathematics grade by half a grade or more. The figures for increasing reading and language arts by half a grade or more were 45% and 66%, respectively.
JCCGCI thanks the New York State Department of Education for funding our Community Learning Centers.
