21st Century Community Learning Centers

Improving the outcomes of students in Oregon's 21st CCLC programs

Oregon’s 21st CCLC Programs

Oregon's 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) provide out-of-school programs for students from 24 school districts.

The Research Institute (TRI) has partnered with the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) to provide technical assistance, training, and web-based support for 21st CCLC programs throughout the state. 

If you are a member of the 21st CCLC staff, there are numerous helpful resources and tools available on this website. Each topic under the "Topic Areas" tab represents a collection of documents, webinars, and other resources to support your work.


The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) initiative is the only federal funding source dedicated
exclusively to before school, after school, and summer learning programs. Each state education agency receives
funds based on its share of Title I funding for low-income students at high-poverty, low performing schools. Funds
are also allocated to territories and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

21st CCLC programs provide:
  • Academic enrichment activities that help students meet state and local achievement standards;

  • A broad array of additional services designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program; and

  • Literacy and related educational development services to the families of children who are served in the program.
