Since 2004, the Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board, Inc. has operated a 21st CCLC afterschool program in the Immokalee schools.
In 2009 with additional grant support, the program was expanded to include all Immokalee Schools. Today, approximately 1100 students in grades 3-12 have access to a free, academically focused after school program designed to serve “at-promise,” underachieving students.
Each 21st CCLC program must provide 12 hours of out-of-school time services each week for a minimum 36 weeks each school year. Transportation, safety, academic support, enrichment opportunities (art, recreation, character development), and family involvement are cornerstones in each 21st CCLC site. There is a rigorous application process and a high standard of accountability associated with every 21st CCLC program.
