New Settlement Receives 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant

New Settlement Apartments has received a 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant from the New York State Department of Education that will enable us to expand our after-school programs, creating 140 new slots at four program sites, and launching our first after school teen program for students in CSMP 327 at the New Settlement Community Campus.

This 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant supports 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.
