After-School and Summer Programs

21st Century Community Learning Centers

The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) program has been funding high quality after-school and summer learning programs since 1998. Poverty, opportunity gaps, and unmet academic need drive the program’s purpose. Vermont's 21st CCLC program supports students' learning and interests through diverse and engaging programming using multiple approaches and curricula. Programs are delivered through schools and community partnerships for grades K-12. Annually, approximately 15,000 youth and 6,000 regular attendees are served in 104 high needs communities across the state. Programs are expected to complement, but not duplicate the school day. Annual or semi-annual grant competitions are held to support this vision.

21st CCLC Grant Competition

    The 21st CCLC Grant Application process is now closed to 2018 participants. The next competition is anticipated to be opened during the first week of September, 2018.
