The REAL Center, a private agency, has partnered with the Mount Holly and Pine Hill School Districts to provide high-quality, out-of-school-time services through its Twilight Program.  We also have formed collaborations with Burlington County College, Burlington County Library, Camden County Library, and the Courier Post newspaper.  Students who attend the 21st CCLC Twilight Club attend daily during the school year.   Students participate in academic assistance, homework, academic enrichment, dance, music, physical fitness, photography, art, MicroSociety, service learning and field trips.  Family activities are held each quarter.  Parents volunteer for many activities that include the advisory committee, development of parent workshops and attendance at parent activities.
