KOKOMO, IN / PRESS RELEASE – United Way serving Howard and Tipton Counties’ Board of Directors has announced a $28,170 grant to help fund Education programs through Carver Community Center.
Donations given through the Annual Fundraising Campaign, both individually and through workplace campaigns make this grant possible. United Ways’ donors make it possible for Carver to provide fun and educational programs to youth and adults in Howard County.
“These generous contributions allow Carver Center to help youth and adults in our community receive additional education services, including tutoring, computer skills, life-literacy, and more,” said Dantá Rogers, Carver Community Center Executive Director. “This funding allows us to reach life-long learners who are brave enough to seek informal education in a variety of areas. We continue to build on the legacy of our community by promoting education, health, and well-being.”
This grant brings opportunity for expanding the educational programming at Carver. Early exploration would include programs like American Sign Language, Spanish, Computer Basics, Advanced Computer Skills, Gardening, Cooking alongside their current tutoring and Lego Robotics programs.
