CCDC’s Reach-Out Program works with out-of-school youth to encourage them to re-enroll and complete either their high school diploma or GED, or to enroll in vocational training, college, or the armed forces. CCDC also encourages youth to get involved in volunteering at community organizations and at schools, as a path to character development and civic responsibility and helps link them to an organization that can benefit from their time and efforts.
CCDC also operates a 21st Century Learning Center, the Marshall All-Stars Program at John Marshall Elementary School in the Pomona Unified School District (PUSD), and is funded by the California Department of Education. Marshall All-Stars provides Academic Assistance, Enrichment, and Family Literacy Services to middle school students, grades sixth, seventh, and eighth, (ages 11 thru 13), Marshall All-Stars was uniquely designed upon inception for the targeted students, as the program was developed in response to the results of a 2008 CCDC needs assessment of under-achieving students at Marshall Middle School, their parents, and residents of the area (zip code 91768).
The overall goal of the program is to improve the students’ academic achievement and their scores in the standardized tests, especially in English/Language Arts and Math, energize students’ enthusiasm to learn, assist parents in becoming full partners in their child’s education, and to assist in relieving any barriers in the home (unemployment, illiteracy) that prevent the student from reaching his or her goal for academic success.
