A peek into the great work happening at the YMCA of the Twin Tier’s 21st CCLC Program!
Brianna and her team at the YMCA of the Twin Tiers put together a video that shows some of the important work that they do in support of the children and families of their community. The value of 21st CCLC programs throughout the country cannot be understated.
Nearly 60,000 New York State students benefit from the 21st CCLC grant. This grant provides afterschool opportunities for children and their families all over the state in rural, suburban, and urban areas. This video is a great snapshot of children from a wide geographic area being provided a safe place afterschool to experience academic enrichment, receive healthy snacks, and participate in a variety of extra-curricular opportunities that aren’t necessarily available during the school day.
