The 21st Century Community Learning Centers

The 21st Century Community Learning Centers funded by the New York State Department of Education

This program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide 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.
In total, Vision Education & Media has delivered programs in over twenty-five schools funded by the 21st Century Community Learning Center grants(21st CCLC), providing a variety of STEM programs to youth from high needs communities. Traditionally, students from underserved populations learn science exclusively from a textbook. Our approach allows students to become engaged in all aspects of the learning process, promoting critical, creative and imaginative thinking.

Currently, Vision Education & Media is running in eight schools through 21st CCLC funding
