21st Century Community Learning Center

21st CCLC Main Page Image

The 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) program provides federal funding for the establishment of community learning centers that provide academic, artistic and cultural enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.

Program Goals

  • To assist youth in meeting state standards for core academic subjects by providing students with academic enrichment opportunities before school, after school and/or during holidays or summer recess.
  • To offer participants a broad array of other services and programs, such as art, music, recreation activities, character education, career and technical training, drug and violence prevention programming, and technology education.
  • To provide educational services for families of participating students, such as literacy instruction, computer training and/or cultural enrichment.
  • To ensure that both youth and their families have decision-making roles in the creation, operation and evaluation of every 21st CCLC 
  • To mobilize school, community and private sector social and health services support and resources in order to remove barriers that impede students’ learning.
