After School Program

We are now offering a virtual After School at Home program with fun STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) activities to do at home. Supplies, instructions and student/family support offered by a site coordinator. Email for more information.

21st Century Community Learning Centers

The LCSD free after school programs use science, technology, engineering, arts, math, and literacy to provide educational enrichment opportunities to students in need of academic support. We are grant funded and rely on community support to provide a safe, fun learning environment for children in Lincoln County.

Volunteer Opportunities

21st CCLC is inviting community members to share their STEAM related knowledge for either a one-time visit, or a weekly commitment. If you would like to showcase your talents, while encouraging artistic growth in tomorrow’s leaders, please call the site coordinator at your chosen location. Other opportunities include helping out with art projects, being a reading buddy, or assisting the site coordinator in daily activities.

With school based after school programs at five locations throughout the county and two community partner sites, most likely there’s plenty of opportunity to volunteer within your own neighborhood. Thank you for all you do!
