Each year, the Department of Education funds 21st Century Community Learning Centers to states, allocated to support the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools.

The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.

Many states around the country are now conducting competitions to award 21st Century Community Learning Center grants for a number of projects related to after school and out of school learning. In the in the link below, find the State Contact List with links to State websites, application due dates, and types of programs states are funding for your state.

I am Brandon Rodgers (17) and I was born and raised in Memphis, TN. I have always had an urge to help others. I often participate in many community service activities. In fact, in Tennessee it is required for high school students to gain 40 hours of community service before graduation, but I have already accumulated 265 hours of community service and I still have one more year to go before I graduate.

Over the past few years, there has been an increase in youth violence and crimes committed involving young people in Memphis. I took the time to research reasons why teenagers participate in these types of activities. The top three reasons I came up with are "Teens have nothing else to do, so they do crime," "The lack of guidance or education," and "The lack of parental involvement."

In an effort to enrich the lives of youth in Memphis and impact the community, I have been developing a nonprofit youth organization entitled the Youth Enrichment Association (YEA) along with the help of some friends and other Youth advocates. The goal of the organization is built upon the ideas of youth coming together to make a huge impact on the local community, teaching young people core values and life skills that will result in potentially better lives, and creating and maintaining a positive environment for teens in Memphis. YEA will participate in activities such as: Community Service, In/Out of Town Field-trips, Social Events/Gatherings, College/Career Guidance, Youth Seminars/Conferences, Special Guest Speakers, Professional Training and Development Sessions, Team Building Activities, and Much more!

To fulfill these goals and to further carry out our mission, we will need funds, which is why I've created this fundraiser! Thanks in advance for your interest and support in YEA!

dimg my boys, Aidan 7yrs and Christian 6 yrs old,
summer camp in Dearborn at the end of our street. This will be boys 1st. Summer Camp. This would be so helpful so I can continue working when boys are off school. Friends from class will be going and the friends on the street. Every day my kids ask if I registered them, my heart breaks knowing I can't afford it this year coming out a divorces / with now only my part time income. Camp will have daily swimming, rock climbing, activities and tournaments against other groups. We have lived in Dearborn for a year. (Mommy, Aidan and Christian)
Its been a hard ajustment for them, Being pulled away from where they grew up, from having family live all together to now visiting on weekends, leaving their friends and a home from birth. Last year I got divorced after 8 year. I believed that divorces hurt kids the most. We lived a confortablemmiddle class life to struggeling. boys were introduced to sports from age of 6 months old, swimming, soccer, etc. as a single mom I struggle trying yo make ends meet. Their too young to understand adult pronlems. I work part time, my family lives in Canada and my in laws never did help or come around. A babysitter for 2 children is expensive. I feel like I work to pay the sitter. Daddy will only takes boys only his scheduled days, I try to put negativity aside, not involve myself, stay focused on goals for our future, beleive god will lead me the right road. I give my boys lots of love, staying positive, showing them that going tothe park, playing catch to taking bike rides is pricless. This is my divorce not my children, this is why I'm reaching out for help so my kids can enjoy being kids, not growing up fast. I'm happy my kids have made friends, enjoy their new school. 'm glad my boys are coming around, and with their first summer in Dearborn. Camp would be good for them, their little minds staying busy and out of trouble.. Thank you so much for taking your time in reading this and bring interested.
My hole life I helped, gave, being a helpful citizen, unfortunetly, Its me now on the other end. All will work out....Thank you again.

Hello! My name is Laura Romero and I’m a high school sophomore at Miami Lakes Educational Center. I am in the Cambridge Academy, an academy sponsored by Cambridge University. I am also a staff writer for The Harbinger- my school’s newspaper, a member of The American Red Cross and a member of Junior Statesmen Of America (JSA).
I am writing to you concerning my summer plans and the need for your financial support. This summer I hope to attend the JSA Summer Program at Georgetown University in Washington DC. where I’ll be taking college courses and will meet and question national leaders, including White House officials, Congressional leaders, Cabinet members, lobbyists and journalists. The cost of the trip is $5,000 which includes room and board, textbooks and all other academic expenses. The price does not include airfare or transportation expenses. I have just begun to fundraise on my own and I know it will not be enough.
The program will begin June 14 and will continue until July 5. I will be living in a college dorm and take courses on Speech & Political Communication as well as writing a research paper and debating (my passion).
Since I was a little girl, I knew that education was the key to success. I have always worked hard and strived to do good in school and in all other activities that I have been part of. My mom, a single mother, came to this country 10 years ago and started a career from scratch. She is the one that taught me the importance of education. This program that I wish to attend is my dream. It is a step that I have to take in order to get to where I want. I have a plan to attend this program, but I need your financial support.
Please consider making a donation to make this dream come true. You can take a look at my fundraising profile at https://fundraise.jsa.org/fundraise?fcid=440372 and donate on the site through credit card or you can write a check payable to Junior Statesmen Foundation and mail it to 7040 NW 179 St. Apt 111, Miami, FL. 33015
Thank you in advance for your support.
Feel free to contact me at lromero.harbinger@gmail.com

I am a mother of two active girls who are both prior gymnastic/dance participant programs. This year the ymca has a program for gymnastic but not all day and no dance.

I have look into other camps in the area and they are equally expensive. My husband is full time in school doing a career chjange so finances are extremly tight and they would be home unattended if I am unable to afford the camps. Please help me to keep them active and involved this coming summer 2015. They are taking summer applications for many of these programs now. Any grant that I am eligible for would be helpful.

I am looking for funding to help give our outdoor education building a makeover. A simple paint job and some minor repairs is all we really need (though as most non-profits know there is always more to be done). The building is the size of a large garage and has not been remolded since it was built about 40 years ago. Our hope for the remodel is to restart the energy and creative juices that we are trying to tap into with our returning participants and give a great first impression to new participants.
