PDY/PAY 21st CCLC Afterschool Program is a FREE program that provides support services to families of students in grades Kindergarten through 10th Grade.  We provide academic and social activities for our youth through a unique collaborative partnership with parents, schools and the community.  PDY/PAY targets 300 students within the Lee County School System.  We aim to increase knowledge and skills in the areas of math, reading/language-arts and literacy, enhance personal development, participation in the arts, leadership skills and parental and family involvement.   


Our program operates with a strong emphasis on STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.  Not only do we incorporate on-site instruction, we offer innovative and hands-on field trips for students to make real-life connections with their weekly teachings.

Both PDY and PAY Afterschool Program mirror each other in the aspect of overall education and developmental environment we strive to create.  PDY stands for Positive Direction for Youth and PAY stands for Positive Academics for Youth.  Each program is staffed with a Program Director, Site Coordinator, Lead Teachers, Assistant Teachers, Tutors and Resource Officer. 


 Your child can expect to have an amazing experience with a diverse group of individuals engaging in hands-on learning!
