The purpose of the 21st CCLC program is to provide funds for communities to establish or expand activities in community learning centers that:

(2) offer students a broad array of additional services, programs, and activities, such as youth development activities; drug and violence prevention programs; counseling programs; art, music, and recreation programs; technology education programs; and character education programs, that are designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students; and

(3) offer families of students served by community learning centers opportunities for literacy and related educational development.

The following activities are allowable:
  • remedial education and academic enrichment learning programs, including additional assistance to students to allow them to improve their academic achievement;
  • mathematics and science education;
  • career exploration and readiness;
  • arts and music education;
  • entrepreneurial education;
