Director’s Message:  This is always the most exciting time of the school year.  For some it means no more school for two months and for those graduating it means no more school! All of us here at the Carver Community Center want to congratulate all of our graduating seniors and wish them good luck on their future endeavors! As summer is fast approaching and the weather starts to heat up, come to the Carver Community Center and hang out in the AC!  Carver Community Center is open everyday after school with open gym from 4pm - 6pm and the Youth Center is open daily from 2 - 7. Students can come in and play PS4’s, watch TV in the lounge area, listen to music, play pool, or use the computers! On May 6th the Carver Center will be hosting a dance competition for the Flagler Dolls. Come into Carver and Support them as they compete against groups from Flagler and Volusia County!

Road to Success Program:  RTS has helped 199 young adults earn their GEDs to-date with 27 of those earning honors.   RTS is a FREE year-round program and currently enrolling now for June & July.  RTS enrolls up to 45 students per year, we focus on GED prep, life skills and pre-employment training. Over the last several months RTS has had 97% of students graduating with their GEDs and a job or post-secondary education. In April we started three new students “paid” internships at the Flagler Humane Society and Habitat for Humanity’s Thrift shop and Flagler’s Youth Center.   This months’ workshops included: Sayskids, Wells Fargo, Career Source Flagler Volusia conducted resume workshop, Mock interview series, Army recruiter presentation, FTI’s Travis Thomas overview of their programs, graduation pictures for students, First Aid & CPR certification class.  In May, students will experience a field trip to Marineland, work on resumes, prep for GED exams and get ready for graduation ceremony in June.
