21st Century Community Learning Centers - Elementary & Middle Schools

California's 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) Program provides funding to create incentives for establishing before-and after-school enrichment programs that partner schools and communities to provide academic and literacy support and safe, constructive alternatives for youth. Each program must consist of three elements: academic assistance, educational enrichment, and family literacy services.
