Abstract:
The Workforce Investment Board of Passaic County’s 21st Community Learning Center/ Afterschool Career Academies program operates three after-school centers located at Academy Health Science (Paterson Public Schools); Academy of Law and Public Safety (Paterson Public Schools); Academy of Sports Business, Management and Administration (Paterson Public Schools); and Paterson Catholic Regional High School.  The afterschool programs are open:  Monday through Friday (during the school months).

The goal of the 21st CCLC/ASCA program is to educate participating students about the availability of employment in high-demand and high-growth sectors within Northern New Jersey by working with the students to improve their academic achievement in the areas of math, language arts and science.  With linkages to North Jersey Partners and alliances with professional organizations, our program will expose each student to potential careers and work with them to prepare a career map, so that they will be able to achieve their goals of a job/career in a high-demand, high-growth industry sector.
