Benefits of 21st Century Community Learning Center Grants
After school programs can help students learn, engage and grow while offering their parents work/life balance and peace of mind. But only 1 in 3 families who want after school care for their children have access to programs.
A 21st Century Community Learning Center grant is designed to help close that gap by establishing or expanding community learning centers in order to provide students with the broad array of academic support, enrichment as well as social and emotional engagement opportunities.
Grant funds can be used for invaluable resources like:
- Academic support such as tutoring, literacy programs, Math, STEM, Computer Science and more
- Programs supporting a healthy, active lifestyle
- Community outreach like parenting skills, cultural programs, counseling and career readiness
