(Support Training In Valuable Employee) program that helps train employees for the workplace and the Beacon Program that gives after school homework help and recreation for children 6 to 13 years of age. The Beacon Program also offers free adult computer classes every Saturday at MS 198 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
