The 21st Century Community Learning Center program awards competitive grants for expanded academic enrichment opportunities for children attending high poverty schools. Tutorial services and academic enrichment activities are designed to help students meet local and state academic standards in subjects such as reading and math. In addition, programs may provide youth development activities, drug and violence prevention programs, technology education programs, art, music and recreation, counseling, and character education to enhance the academic component of the program.
Katie Theberge, an incoming Freshman at Laconia High School, has been an active participant in both Project EXTRA's 21st Century Community Learning Center afterschool and summer programs since 2006. She was selected by the US Department of Education (USED) to be a member of the Student Voices Project. USED will track the academic, social, and community service activities of each Student Voices Project participant to show the great work being done in their school and community as well as to inspire other youth. Katie recently attended the USED 21st CCLC Summer Conference in TX as a participant and presenter.
