  • Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers Program

    Purpose:

    Program Activities:

    • Remedial Education and Academic Enrichment
    • Reading, Math and Science
    • Homework Help
    • The Arts and Music Education through Cultural Awareness
    • Physical Education and Recreational Activities
    • STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math 
    • Project Based Learning
    • Career Exploration (Middle School Only)
    • Programs that promote parental involvement and family literacy
