Our Mission Statement

Inspiring youth today, creating productive citizens tomorrow!

Our Vision
21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) Grants strive to build and sustain out of school time learning opportunities that provide academically enriching youth development, while engaging families to be active partners in their child’s success. 


After the Bell 21st Century Community Learning Center programs are currently in 9 Paradise Valley Unified School District elementary schools, 1 middle school and 1 high school. Our department is committed to offering high quality extended day learning opportunities  for students and their families.  Each site has been awarded a 21st CCLC grant based on a competitive application process that is monitored by ADE.  The grant is a five year cycle of funding that is used for  academic, enrichment, youth development, professional development and family engagement offerings outside of regular school day hours. 


21st CCLC is a collaboration with PVUSD Community Education and various community partnerships.
