Calendars Project

  1. In 2019, we partnered up with Catholic Charities Office of Maine Refugee Services. Our team created 2020 Celebrating Diversity Calendars with the hope of  highlighting countries represented in our state that are often forgotten. 
  2. Another part of our mission was  to raise $10,000 for 10 refugee college students to assist them in their journey  to obtaining a college degree.
  3. We had an amazing release  party where over 150 stakeholders joined over 100 refugee families from across the globe who now call the state of Maine home. 
  4. Sold over 200 copies to individuals, schools, and  organizations around Maine. 
  5. The process of $ 8,000 dollars will be given as scholarship funds to eight   refugee high schools and college students. 

Tutoring Services

An important part of our mission as CTA is to ensure that education is feasible for all, especially to English language learners. Via our tutoring program we can support as many newcomers as possible in their journey in language acquisition . Through implementing an inclusive curriculum to ensure students success and the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Helping the leaders of tomorrow learn to succeed today

CTA believes that every opportunity counts and can lead to success. We are committed to lending a hand to make education feasible for all. In our leaders program: we have built a library in two schools in Sudan, have provided the school supplies to teachers and students. Supplies such as books, pencils, erasers, and notepads. We will continue this effort in other countries in the future.
