21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC)

The Vermont Agency of Education conducts grant competitions for the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) program. Vermont's 21st CCLC program seeks to enhance students' academic achievement and to foster lifelong interests in the arts, recreation and other areas through high-quality, out-of-school learning opportunities.

This video on summer learning in Vermont highlights the opportunity and need for expanding summer learning programs in Vermont. High quality summer programs can advance learning, build skills and relationships, and contribute substantially to reducing "summer learning loss," particularly for low income learners. The 21st Century Community Learning Center program funds high quality afterschool and summer opportunities., many of which are highlighted in this video.
