We at Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County (BGCPBC) would like to inform the public that we are in the process of preparing eight proposals to the Florida Department of Education to establish 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) programs during the 2024-25 program year beginning August 1, 2024.  Proposals are due on May 31, 2024, and they will be posted on BGCPBC’s website dedicated to its existing 21st CCLC programs on or before Monday, June 3, 2024. (https://bgcpbc21stcclc.wordpress.com/)


21st CCLC programs provide free, high-quality programming to students during non-school hours and during periods when school is not in session such as winter, spring, and summer breaks. 21st CCLC programs help students meet state academic standards in core academic subjects, such as English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics; offer students a broad array of high-yield enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offer literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.


BGCPBC seeks to establish 21st CCLC programs at the following Boys & Girls Clubs:

·         Boca Raton Club, 300 Newcastle Street, Boca Raton, serving students from Boca Raton Elementary School, J.C. Mitchell Elementary School, and Boca Raton Middle School

·         Florence De George Club, 4105 Pinewood Avenue, West Palm Beach, serving students from Northboro Elementary School, Northmore Elementary School, and Roosevelt Middle School

·         Marjorie S. Fisher Club, 905 Drexel Avenue, West Palm Beach, serving students from Grassy Waters Elementary School, Seminole Trails Elementary School, Wynnebrook Elementary School, and Jeaga Middle School

·         Max M. Fisher Club, 221 West 13th Street, Riviera Beach, serving students from Dr. Mary Mcleod Bethune Elementary School, Lincoln Elementary School, John F. Kennedy Middle School, and Howell L Watkins Middle School

·         Neil S. Hirsch Family Club, 1080 Wellington Trace, Wellington, serving students from Wellington Elementary School and Emerald Cove Middle School


BGCPBC also seeks to establish 21st CCLC programs at the following high schools: 

·         Forest Hill Community High School, 6901 Parker Ave, West Palm Beach, FL 33405, serving students from Forest Hill Community High School

·         John I Leonard High School, 4701 10th Ave N, Greenacres, FL 33463, serving the students from John I Leonard High School.

·         Lake Worth Community High School, 1701 Lake Worth Rd, Lake Worth Beach, FL 33460, Serving members of Lake Worth High School


21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) are critical for working families, improving academic achievement and keeping young people safe during afterschool hours when juvenile crime peaks, and many young people are at risk. 21st CCLCs are currently the only Federal funding dedicated to programming in the afterschool hours and provide essential support for kids and families who need it most.
