21st Century Community Learning Centers
The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) program provides academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.
ASPIRA receives funding from the Illinois State Board of Education to provide CCLC services at the following schools in Chicago:
