21st Century Community Learning Centers
The 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) program is a, holistic approach to the well-being of children. 21st CCLC programs works with students to help increase academic performance through extended learning opportunities, while keeping children safe during out of school time.
The program provides academic enrichment opportunities for children who come from economically disadvantaged families and attend low-performing schools to help them meet local and state academic standards in literacy and mathematics.
Programs will also provide youth development activities, such as, art, and music activities, character education, and recreation to enhance the program’s academic components. Additionally, programs will focus on parent and family engagement outcomes. 21st CCLC programs offer students an opportunity to engage in activities with nurturing adults and gain experience with activities they might not otherwise be afforded.
The 21st CCLC program is authorized under Title IV, Part B of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left behind Act of 2001 (NCLB).
