Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota County (BGSC) is requesting the Florida Department of Education Bureau of Family and Community Outreach to fund the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program (21st CCLC Program) at the Arcadia Boys & Girls Club.

The proposed 21st CCLC Program will provide elementary-aged children from Memorial Elementary, West Elementary and Nocatte Elementary, as well as their families, with project-based learning opportunities such as youth development activities, service learning, nutrition and health education, drug and violence prevention programs, art and music instruction and more. The goal is for the youth participants to ultimately achieve state student standards in core subjects, while offering their families opportunities for active and meaningful engagement in their children’s education.

The submitted application will be available for download at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota County website by July 19.
