Our Vision

21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC)little girl smiling Grants strive to build and sustain out of school time learning opportunities that provide academically enriching youth development, while engaging families to be active partners in their child’s success.

After the Bell- 21st Century Community Learning Center programs are currently in six Paradise Valley Unified School District elementary schools and one high school. Our department is committed to offering high quality extended day learning opportunities for students and their families. Each site has been awarded a 21st CCLC grant based on a competitive application process that is monitored by ADE. The grant is a five-year cycle of funding that is used for academic, enrichment, youth development, professional development and family engagement offerings outside of regular school day hours.

21st CCLC is a collaboration with PVSchools Community Education and various community partnerships.

The 21st Century Community Learning Center after school program is funded by a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Education and administered by the Arizona Department of Education.
