The Campaign for Emerald Coast Learning Center

Capital Connection

In November 2020, ECAC launched its Transition to Work (TTW) program, a pre-vocational program through the Florida Department of Education in partnership with Northwest Florida State College (NWFSC) designed to teach our older students job skills for future employment. NWFSC has graciously partnered with us, along with the support of Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation, so that our students can learn job skills in a safe, structured environment right here on campus.

Currently our students work in the following areas on campus: Receiving (mail sorting and campus vehicle washing), Kay Litke Culinary Arts Greenhouse (planting, harvesting and maintenance), Athletic Facilities (cleaning and organizing facilities), and Mattie Kelly Arts Center (ushering at performances).

The success and projected growth of the TTW program has led us to finally take the next step for ECAC. We are excited to announce the start of a Capital Campaign for a second facility dedicated to our TTW students and our students following an academic path. The new facility will be called Emerald Coast Learning Center and will be a 20,000 square foot building connected to our current facility on the Niceville, FL campus of NWFSC.
