ABOUT THE ACTION RESEARCH CENTER


The Action Research Center serves the needs of others by conducting action research in schools, communities, and non profit organizations. The center promotes personal development, academic excellence, and social change.  Our innovative programs equip students, parents, teachers, and community leaders with the knowledge and skills to become change agents.

In fact, 99% of CEYS students graduate with a HS diploma, and 90% CEYS students enroll in college.  Please, review the Action Research Center Report Card to learn more about our successful programs.

Our mission is to provide stakeholders with access to information to enhance equity in our communities. Our programs encourage student and community leadership development.  We envision all stakeholders serving as change agents in their communities.  If you are interested helping students to access college and career readiness, leadership, and global service opportunities, consider making a gift.  To make a donation, click here
