The 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) Grant Program's focus is to provide expanded academic enrichment opportunities for children attending selected schools and their families. Tutorial services and academic enrichment activities are designed to help students meet local and state academic standards in subjects such as reading and math. In addition, 21st CCLC programs provide youth development activities, behavior intervention programs, drug and violence prevention programs, technology education programs, art, music and recreation programs, counseling and character education to enhance the academic components of the program.
The purpose of the 21st CCLC is to expand learning opportunities for children and their families outside of regular school hours. These programs offer strong after-school activities, which involve both schools and the community, joining together to help kids develop into healthy adults. Our after-school programs work with public and nonprofit agencies and organizations; local businesses; higher education institutions, recreational, cultural and human service organization to provide opportunities to try new skills, learn different ways of approaching challenges with creative solutions, work on challenging lessons and achieve success.
