Earn your Behavioral Health Certificate

If you like helping people, this certificate program could help you move forward in the areas of counseling, psychology, social work, social justice work, or health care management. Through a partnership between the Diversity in Health Training Institute, Chabot College, and CVACE, students in this program will enroll in classes at Chabot AND receive support from ESL instructors at CVACE. This program is most appropriate for students already in advanced level ESL classes or who have tested out of ESL. 
Application deadline is Thursday, December 16th, 2021.

Direct Support Professionals (DSP) Fellowship

If you speak an Asian language and like helping people with physical or intellectual disabilities, you may be interested in this opportunity to learn how to become a Direct Support Professional. You will attend ESL classes at CVACE and also attend classes to learn about becoming a DSP. The DSP classes are supported by CVACE ESL teachers.
You must enroll in both CVACE ESL classes AND the DSP classes to be a part of the program.
The Fall DSP Cohort is already in progress. More information about a Spring Cohort coming soon.
