Our mission is to be a powerful and effective resource to communities providing quality performance base educational services and human services, while providing outreach programs and opportunities to address emerging community needs and hardships.
AKCCL was established in 2012 for the purpose of providing educational services to children, human services to the elderly, disabled, and the developmentally delayed, while providing charitable outreach services to the community. AKCCL is guided by a board of directors form Louisiana and Mississippi. These members hold true to the mission of the company and bring expertise that will help successfully guide the executive staff in managing the company. Due to their ongoing support of the programs, the executive staff is able to address the needs of the community and provide solutions to issues that arise. The conditions associated with many families and communities, are discontinuity in education, health and human services, and community hardship. This stems mainly from low-socioeconomic hardships and community crisis. These conditions are address by our three areas of focus: Alternative School and Family Support Programs (Academic Based After-school Programs), Home and Community Based Services, and Community Outreach.
AKCCL is operated by individuals with experience working with educational agencies such as Maine Department of Education, Delaware Department of Education, and East Baton Rouge School System. Also, we have staff members that have experience teaching in Prince George’s County and Charles County School Systems, both located in the state of Maryland.
