Overview of the 21st CCLC Grant

This federally-funded program supports afterschool community learning centers that operate primarily on school campuses statewide.  Services include academic intervention and enrichment activities along with a broad array of youth development opportunities.  These after school and summer classes complement the student’s regular school day program.  The 21st CCLC programs mainly serve students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools and their families.  After school programs help students meet the core standards in academic subjects such as language arts and math. In addition, other educational services are offered to family members of students participating in the program in order to further engage parents in their student’s learning and achievement goals.

Mission

To assist 21st Century Community Learning Centers in building and sustaining comprehensive out of school time programs that provide high-quality academic enrichment opportunities for all children, and that meaningfully engage adult family members in helping their children succeed academically.
