The 21st Century Community Learning Center program awards competitive grants for expanded academic enrichment opportunities for children attending high poverty schools. Tutorial services and academic enrichment activities are designed to help students meet local and state academic standards in subjects such as reading and math. In addition, programs may provide youth development activities, drug and violence prevention programs, technology education programs, art, music and recreation, counseling, and character education to enhance the academic component of the program.
This year two new afterschool awards are being included in the Child Development Bureau’s 2015 Early Childhood and Afterschool Celebration on April 14, 2015. The Thad Mandsager Award is to honor the late 21st Century Community Learning Center Program Director, Thad Mandsager, for his legacy of civic contributions for the greater good of the youth and families in his community. Additionally, the NHAN (New Hampshire Afterschool Network) Excellence in Afterschool Award celebrates a commitment to quality and professionalism in the field of afterschool. If you know someone worthy of one of these awards please complete a nomination form. Nominations will be accepted if submitted electronically or postmarked on or before Friday, February 6, 2015.
