Out-of-School Time Programs (OST)
21st Century Community Learning Centers Program (21st CLCC)
The 21st Century Community Learning Center Program is a federally-funded program (Title IV-B) awarded to public school districts, charter schools, community-based organizations, public/private organizations, faith-based organizations or a consortium of these organizations, in order to provide youth a safe environment during non-school hours. This program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for youth, particularly youth who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps youth meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, offers youth a broad array of enrichment activities that help their social, emotional, and behavioral development; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating youth.
