Description:

CITIZENSHIP CLASSES

Classes for immigrant residents of Western Queens help prepare for the oral citizenship exam. Classes are offered at our Senior Center on two afternoons a week. While most participants are members of our Center, classes are open to all community residents.
 

JOB TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT

Because so many of our homebound clients are immigrants, and because our community has a reservoir of culturally compatible residents whose greatest bar to employment may involve limited English-language skills, our licensed home care agency, Sunnyside Home Care Project, continually recruits and provides job-skills training for area residents who want to become home health aides and home attendants. When resources are available, we also provide vocational ESL for trainees, to help them participate fully as members of a professional home-care team.

Other services offered include: Computer Classes, Workshops, Caregiver training, Case Management for Homebound Seniors.
