Safety is the number one priority of George Washington Carver Center, and we are doing everything possible to keep children, our staff, and volunteers protected from the COVID-19 virus. Due to the continued spread of the virus and in accordance with local health department recommendations, we have decided to cancel programs scheduled until further notice. Information as to when programs will resume will be communicated once we have more information. In the meantime, we are advising all our staff, families, and youth to continue to take precautions as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We greatly appreciate your understanding and support of our efforts to keep kids, their families, staff, and our community safe.
