In collaboration with Howard County Community Organizations Active in Disaster, CAPA launched a weekly live educational talk. We invited experts from a variety of disciplines to give interactive Zoom presentations to K-12 students.

We hope the regularly scheduled talks can help parents and students with the home-school and distance learning plans.  Click here for our weekly topics.

We started an on-line learning program within a couple of weeks of school closure. We used our pools of existing high school tutors to teach their peers or younger children. It includes one-to-one or small group tutoring. It also formed an exercise group. The story was reported by the Voice of  America: (Starting from minute 24, the interview was conducted in English with Chinese subtitle in Chinese)


* Please be noted: CAPA’s tutoring program was established 3 years ago to support low income and ESOL students in Howard County. This is an extension of this existing program.
