The 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic 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.
The map below showcases just some of Pennsylvania’s 21st CCLC programs in diverse geographic areas of the state. Explore the map to find additional information, including highlights, geographic location, data and outcomes, and contact information.
This project implements a variety of robust, evidence-based STEAM activities that spark and sustain an interest in STEAM content so that students become engaged and achieve success. On a typical day they receive help with homework, STEAM enrichment, and recreational activities. In addition to the afterschool programs, summer enrichment programs are offered with academic and athletic content.
