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.

Hello, i am a low income student currently in the 11th grade who is interested in participating in the 2012 Junior Statesmen Summer School program. I am incredibly eager for the oppurtunity however the cost of the program including room and board for the mounth comes out to 4,395, and that is more than my family can afford. I have been accepted and still need to raise 4000. Hello, My name is Frank Chaparro and I have recently been accepted to the JSA Summer School at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. to study International Relations.I was accepted into the program based on my political inclinations, as well as my grades, extracurriculars and community service. While there I willI take college level courses that will help me understand the intricacies of US government.I am very serious and passionate about debating and politics, and hope that this experience can help me grow as a "politician" and also open me up to new ideas and ways of thinking.

The Missoula YMCA is gearing up for summer camp. The Y serves over 900 children in our summer camps every year. We are estimating to give away over $600,000 in scholarships and financial assistance to children. Part of the magic of summer camp, especially in Montana is being in the outdoors. Unfortunately, its is very expensive to obtain permits for children who may not otherwise have the chance to go to a lake, hiking on a trail or just enjoy fresh air away from the city. Montana has a such amazing educational opportunities for children. We hope to give all of the children the chance to experience nature at its best.

KYDS Inc. is getting ready for summer and preparing for our commitment to carry out our late Board Presidents wish of sending as many disadvantaged students to summer camp as possible, through the Robert Ellis Memorial Summer Camp campaign. On July 9th, 2012, our goal is to send 100 underprivileged students on a majestic summer camp experience, nestled away in the Los Padres National Forest. For the sixth consecutive year, we will be making a big impact in the lives of children living in unfavorable conditions by providing an outdoor education, building self esteem and changing the course of their lives. KYDS is in need of Summer Camp Grant opportunities for this prgram.

Our church is interested in funding for a summer program for our youth. Many of the children in our community are not fed nutritous meals once school is out for the summer. Additionally most of them do not participate in enrichment activities during this period. Our initial program began last summer with volunteers and a budget of $600. We are in search of funds that will expand the services an opportunities that these children would not ordinarily have.

Hi there. My name is Regina Burton and I am hoping that someone can advise me on grant programs that are available to assist me with our Summer Program here in Reading, PA. We need financial help to make is possible for us to continue the program in 2012. We provide a safe haven for up to 30 children. We stress the importance of good conduct, positive attitude, respect and self-awareness. We provide a very rigorouse program exposing our kids to various companies and programs that they would not be exposed to on their own. This is currently established as a 9 week summer program for children from ages 3 - 12 years old, Our goal is to make the program available to at least 30 children full time 5 days a week this coming summer and 10 part time students. We also provide transportation to pools, parks, museums and amusement parks etc. So anyone who can assist me and provide some input on what grants are available that would be helpful to us would be appreciated.

Hi my name is James Snead
I have a wrestling program in Providence Rhode Island. We train up to 40 children in wrestling and reading. We would like to extend our reading program for the summer of 2011. The program is called "Wrestling with Reading". We take trips to parks and beaches. We learn motor skills, conditioning, and wrestling. I am also involved with a lunch program carried out at a Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church in Providence that allows us to house a federal breakfast and lunch program there. Children can receive lunch from the ages of 5-13. Our main focus is to get every child to read.
