21st Century Community Learning Centers

The 21st CCLC is a competitive grant program to support the establishment of community learning centers offering expanded learning opportunities afterschool and in the summer.  This federally-funded program is authorized under Title IV, Part B of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended.

Nebraska’s 21st CCLCs create an afterschool environment focused on three overarching goals, 1) improving overall student academic success, 2) increasing positive behavior and social interactions, and 3) increasing active and meaningful family and community engagement.

The conference partners are pleased to introduce the new StayConnected Nebraska Afterschool Webinar Series, intended to provide information and updates in the months preceding the upcoming 2020 afterschool conference which will be held in Omaha at the CHI Health Center on October 2nd.
