The mission of the 21st CCLC is to:

1) Provide opportunities for academic support programming and enrichment activities, including providing tutorial services to help students (particularly students in high-poverty area and those who attend low-performing schools) meet State and local student performance standards in core academic subjects such as reading and mathematics.
2) Offer students a broad array of additional services, programs and activities, such as positive youth development activities, drug and violence prevention education programs, counseling programs, art, music, recreation programs, technology education programs and character education programs that are designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program of participating students.
3) Offer families of students served by 21st CCLCs opportunity for math, science, and literacy-related educational development.
