With so many demands on today’s families and the importance of child development and college preparation, it’s important for families to know someone has their back. That’s why NWBRV provides an affordable, year-round youth program called College Ready Communities. Our programs are for school aged youth and are located in Woonsocket and North Smithfield.
Our mission is to work with families, educators, and community partners to provide a safe environment where youth achieve academic success and develop healthy minds and bodies.
The CRC program employs certified teachers to support literacy and STEAM (Science, Technology, English, Arts, Mathematics) learning. In addition to academics, we teach youth leadership, civic engagement, and college preparedness. We also work to connect youth to positive role models who are part of their community. By taking a holistic approach to learning, we aim to instill strong positive values in our youth while encouraging play and fun.
