Overview

To support New Jersey in building a stronger workforce to meet the needs of businesses in the state, CHS provides English literacy and civics education to foreign-born adult learners. Instruction focuses on helping students learn in real-life contexts to ensure that they gain the necessary skills to compete in the workplace and exercise their rights and responsibilities as citizens. These efforts have been implemented through successive subcontracts with the Vineland Public Schools’ Adult Education Program and the Salem County/Cumberland Adult Basic Services Consortium.
