Abstract:
The Newark Public Schools Office of Extended School Day Programs and the Northern NJ Boy Scout Council will partner with the 21st CCLC Inclusion First Program to provide a daily, comprehensive afterschool program for students, as well as activities for their parents and adult family members that further support the educational goals and endeavors of 21st CCLC participants.  The program will operate at four schools in the Newark Public Schools district: George W. Carver, Dr. W. H. Horton, Oliver Street, and South Seventeenth Street. 

The 21st CCLC program will provide academic support that is thematically based, engaging, and adheres to the NJCCCS.  The curricula and other program activities will be infused with character education.  Other activities will provide cultural enrichment, personal development, and recreational activities in collaboration with several community-based organizations. Participants will attend several trips to further support academic learning and to provide a broad range of relevant experiences.  In addition, parental activities will be offered that strengthen parenting skills, help parents to assist students with academics/homework and foster a stronger parent/child rapport.
