Many volunteers give of their time and energy to Carver kids each year. These tutors, mentors, homework helpers, career counselors, and other skill-specific project leaders offer their support, feedback and student praise. The Carver Community Center utilizes volunteers for community events such as Career Fairs, talent contests, student and family awards ceremonies, holiday celebrations, and food drives. Corporate teams produce daylong events for our youth and generously undertake extensive renovation and cleanup projects. Our student volunteers are especially helpful to our CASPER (K-5) kids at the Carver Community Center. Today there were four high school students: Nadia Torees, Emily Becerril and Sebastian Samperez, each 10th graders from Norwalk High School, and Samantha Cioffi, a 12th grader from Holy Child School in Rye, NY.
The Roton Middle School R.A.M.S. after school program runs Monday through Thursday from 3:00 to 5:30. It is run by certified teachers and teaching aides from Roton Middle School. The program Coordinator is Roton teacher Dean Vaccaro.

Carver is very enthusiastic about and proud of our partnership with the Classical Studies Magnet Academy (CSMA) in Bridgeport. This is a "themed" Pre-K to 8th grade public school in Bridgeport’s West Side neighborhood for more than 400 students. Its curriculum of classical literature, art and music utilizes the Paideia instructional methodology (traditional lecturing, coaching, and the Socratic method of extended discussion). Instruction is project-based, involving frequent assemblies, presentations and field trips. CSMA occupies a 123-year-old structure, the oldest school still in use by the district. The school also rents a nearby closed Catholic school for their Pre-K to 2nd grade students.
