The Gargiulo Education Center develops educated and confident students within the Naples migrant community Afterschool Enrichment program for students of migrant families. They provide academic programming that complements the public school curriculum, in addition to a variety of enriching out-of-school content and activities. The Community Foundation granted $10,000 to add a new S.T.E.A.M. enrichment program. The Community Foundation grant dollars will be used to cover the costs of program staff, equipment, and consumables.
One Year Later: Currently, all 60 children enrolled are participating in the year-long program. Due to the need of the students participating, a grant from the Education Fund also provided needed technology in the classroom.
