Nature and Purpose of Agency

Chinese American Council Inc. (CPC) with over 50 programs is a non profit community based organization providing educational and social services for over 50 new years in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.  CPC Queens School Age Child Care @ PS 20 serves multi-ethnic children ages 5-12 years old.  It is a year round after school center serving low income families.  Our students come from 14 public schools in Region 3 and School District 25.  Our staff reflects our diverse student population representing Black and Latino Americans, South East Asian Americans (Chinese, Korean, Hindi, Urdu, etc). We offer Academic Service Learning at our 2 sites in Flushing.  The second site which is our Early Childhood Center serves children ages 3 and 4 years old.

 

Tasks Available for Students

CPC @PS20

Assist classroom teachers in tutoring elementary school children in all academic areas and homework assistance, leading and teaching small groups of children in multicultural arts and crafts, team sports, and services, and learn office operations and administrative tasks and program management, participate in special projects ort research projects if part of St. John’s coursework.

Education majors in English as a second language is a necessity at PS 20 one-on-one ESL opportunities available.  All other majors are welcome as well.

 

Child Psychology, Child Advocacy and Social Services majors; PS 20 finds that many of the academic struggles of the students derive from developmental difficulties at home; cultural changes, language, child abuse; awareness of cultural problems/immigrants are faced with and how it affects the students learning abilities.  A new trend we discovered that many of our students are "Satellite Babies" children born in US, migrate to China and have reunification problems with their parents.
