After-school Programs &
21st Century Community Learning Centers

Student playing chessAfter-school programs provide children and teens with safe places to try new activities, develop new skills, have fun, and learn.

RIDE also oversees 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLCs). These are federally funded, high quality after-school and summer programs. They provide students with academic support, enrichment and school engagement. They complement students' regular academic program.

Proposals must demonstrate an effective partnership between the Local Education Agency (LEA) and a community-based organization, and may include another public or private entity, if appropriate. Grants begin on July 1, 2019 and are for 5 years, pending continued federal funding and successful program implementation.
