Posh new space elevates students and learning for Adult Literacy Program
As Judy Aucar provides a tour of El Centro Hispano’s sleek new home on Central Avenue in White Plains, she gushes with praise — for the vision and charisma of founder Isabel Villar, for her dedicated staff, and for the longstanding partnership with Southern Westchester BOCES.
“This was designed especially for BOCES,” she said, gesturing to the glass-walled classrooms of this former Harley-Davidson dealership, where SWBOCES’ Center for Adult & Community Services ESL, Citizenship Exam Preparation and High School Equivalency Exam Preparation programs in three classrooms.
“We are very proud to partner with them," said SWBOCES Director of Adult & Community Services Tracy Racicot, "and to celebrate the hard work of our staff and students who come together to learn and grow."News Feed - Adult & Community Services
