Purpose: The 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program Competitive Grant: Cohort 11 is intended to supplement the education of students in grades 4-12, who attend schools eligible for Title I school wide programs or schools where a minimum of 30 percent of students are from low-income families. The program aims to assist students in attaining the skills necessary to meet New Jersey's Core Curriculum Content Standards. Therefore, all 21st CCLC programs must provide participating students with academic enrichment opportunities that complement the regular school day. The vision for New Jersey's 21st CCLC Program is to develop high quality out-of-school time programs through community learning centers that provide services not just to the child but to the entire family unit. Currently, New Jersey's 21st CCLC Program is comprised of 48 grantees throughout the state. Grantees include local education agencies (LEAs), non-profit, for-profit, community-based, and faith-based organizations, operating solely or in partnership with other agencies.
