Youth on the Move is now a 21st Century Community Learning Center!
In its fourth year, Youth on the Move is getting a makeover! While the 4 tenets of Enrichment, Empowerment, Education, and Experiences remain the pillars of the out of school time program for middle and high school students, we can now share that we have been named a 21st Century Community Learning Center by the Georgia Department of Education!
The 21st CCLC program is authorized under Title IV, Part B of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act as amended by Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The purpose of the program is to provide opportunities for academic enrichment activities during non-school hours or periods when school is not in session, such as before and after school or during summer recess. The competitive grant application process is months long, and we credit the support of our neighborhood schools in making this opportunity possible. Through this new partnership, YOTM will increase community-school engagement, provide advanced tutoring, and expand our enrichment activities over the next 5 years.
