The Alice S. Pfaelzer Children’s Center (APCC) is home to the Women’s Coalition of St. Croix’s (WCSC) education programs.
Our center offers students aged four to sixty a variety of activities and the services of volunteers for tutoring and mentoring. We provide a safe learning environment for children, youth and adults with activities that foster nonviolence, self-esteem and 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.
Contact Dr. Sue Diverio, Children Center Director, at (340)773-9222 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, for information on admission to our education programs and APCC’s hours of operation.
Are you a high school student on St. Croix interested in volunteering in the community? Contact Dr. Diverio about participating in the Junior Angels education and leadership program.
Education and recreational programs for students include:
- After school program for children in grades four through eight
- Summer camp for children aged four to fourteen
- Junior Angels – community projects for student volunteers
- Project Link, an alternative high school program for adults
Students are given individualized attention for homework assistance, art classes and other activities for academic and character development in our after school program.
Children in our six-week summer camp are encouraged to develop academic and social skills, and community responsibility through fun, learning activities.
Project Link – Academic & Career Tech Programs for Adults
The Project Link Academic program offers on-site classes for dropouts to complete high school education requirements to obtain diplomas and develop valuable life skills. Career Tech is an additional component. Project Link Academic graduates continue their learning on specific tracks with online college or career training courses. Students have earned certification in criminal justice, medical billing and business management.
