Aprender Mediante Amistad (AMA)

Aprender Mediante Amistad partners with the Bijou Community Center to provide tutoring, homework help and English language assistance to local students living in the Bijou neighborhood.  AMA brings these students onto the CC campus the first three Tuesdays of each block from 4-6pm

If you are interested in joining AMA, please contact

"Not only does AMA form a bond between CC and the community, but it is extremely rewarding to watch children progress with their English skills over time. Because many of these children's parents only speak Spanish, the program gives the young students that little bit of extra attention they need to stay on track with their school work."

--Faith D'Amico '14 

"I participate in AMA because it is so rewarding to help the kids be successful and realize what they can do.  It is also a lot of fun to watch them grow throughout the year and to just be able to hang out and have a good time.  AMA helps me practice my Spanish and I know my involvement makes a difference, even if it is small, in the lives of the kids."

--Cassie Prouty '16
