As authorized by Title IV, part B, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program will provide federal funds to establish or expand community learning centers operating after school hours.
About The Program
The purpose of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program is to provide opportunities for students to receive academic enrichment in core academic subjects. The program also offers students a broad variety of additional services, programs, and activities meant to broaden their horizons. Families of students will be provided with opportunities to engage meaningfully in their educational development so that they can succeed.
What To Expect
Potential members of the program should expect to receive additional academic help in the form of enrichment classes. These classes will provide students with additional feedback to help them meet state and local academic standards in their core subjects. This includes them receiving tutoring services from local area teachers. Students should also expect to gain additional information regarding nutrition, drugs and violence, counseling programs, and career insight. For certain students, there will also be opportunities to gain internships or apprenticeships depending on their career pursuits.
Requirements To Join
To become a member of 21st Century Forms, enrolled youth must be between the ages of 6 and 17 years old. Youth must also be members of the Youth Enrichment Center. Meetings occur once a week and attendance will be mandatory. If a member is unable to attend a meeting that week, they must provide staff with advance notice.
