CMAA is a community-based social services agency that provides afterschool youth programs, English proficiency and financial literacy lessons, job skill training, as well as a plethora of other opportunities for the immigrant and low-income community.
For this upcoming event, CMAA will be throwing a holiday party for the children. To keep the youth engaged, they would like us to help set up and run 3-4 arts and crafts stations. We understand that since the event goes from 3PM – 6PM, it may conflict with work.
