Our center offers students a variety of activities and the services of volunteers for tutoring and mentoring. We provide a safe learning environment for youth and adults, with activities that promote nonviolence, encourage high self-esteem and foster responsible community involvement.

APCC also offers students a number of dedicated study areas, a computer room with individual workstations and free Internet access, and a lending library with over 1500 catalogued books.
