ACCESS Adult Education Program is a part of the Chinatown Community Educational Partnership (CCEP) which is currently a part of The Chinatown Coalition (TCC). We serve to bring awareness and advocacy for our students and families. CCEP meets monthly to collaborate and build partnerships with neighboring agencies, services, and corporations.

ACCESS partnered with Enhance Asian Community on Health (EACH)

to host “Matter of Balance” 8-week workshop for seniors in Tai Tung

Village.  The seniors enjoyed it so much, that a dance class resulted

from it.  The seniors will perform at the Community Night Out in August.  

We are planning on future seminars on topics related to emotional and

mental health, diet, and others that affect the Asian community.​

Throughout the year, we also partner with the National Asian Pacific Center on Aging (NAPCA)/ Greater Boston Chinese Golden Age Center (GBCGAC) with their Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP).  The SCSEP helps older worker participants gain work experience and overcome barriers by receiving on-the-job training at not-for-profit, 501(c)3 community based organizations.  We currently have one senior from SCSEP helping in our Children's Enrichment Programs and around the office.  We are thankful for our SCSEP participant and her contribution to the lives of our adults, kids, and families.

We are grateful for Tai Tung Village and the various collaborating opportunities 

in providing a warm and welcoming place for the residents and many who

come through the development.  Tai Tung and ACCESS provided services

for seniors, ESL classes for the working class and different workshops.

FUNDING

partners

The Adult Basic Education Program is proud to partner with The Lenny Zakim Fund to provide scholarships for our ESOL adult students. The mission of The Lenny Zakim Fund is to identify, listen to, support and connect grassroots community organizations and programs operating “below the radar screen” of many large charitable groups and government grants. The Lenny Zakim Fund provides assistance to those who demonstrate the will and potential to make a difference but lack the necessary resources.

ACCESS After School Enrichment Program is licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education & Care (EEC). We also receive funding through EEC government slots and vouchers for income eligible families.
