The focus of the Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLCs) is to provide expanded academic enrichment opportunities during out-of-school time to support in-school educational efforts.

In partnership with local youth serving and neighborhood agencies, MPS 21st CCLCs increase student achievement and learning by offering engaging academic enrichment activities. Our 21st CCLCs are also safe, fun places for youth to learn and play throughout the year. The program provides positive after-school alternatives and serves as a safe haven.

MPS 21st CCLCs offer educational, recreational, and social activities for youth and adults including:

  • Youth Development Activities
  • College and Career Readiness
  • Social and Emotional Learning
  • Technology Education
  • Art
  • Music
  • Recreation Activities
  • Family Engagement Activities

21st century CLC logoMPS 21st CCLC programs may charge nominal program fees. However, fees or the inability to pay fees cannot be a barrier to participation. If families cannot pay fees or are unwilling to authorize families for Wisconsin Shares, those students should still be allowed to participate in 21st CCLC programming. Interested families should contact the 21st CCLC program site coordinator for more information.

MPS 21st CCLC programs are funded by Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) federal grant funds through a grant agreement with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. 21st CCLC grants are funded by the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by No Child Left Behind, Title IV, Part B.

Registration forms are available on-site at the 21st CCLC school location and must be submitted to the 21st CCLC program site coordinator. Additional forms may be required to be submitted as part of the registration process.
