This project funds Community Learning Centers (CLC) for four ASD Title I schools, which are in high-poverty areas. The major partner is the Alaska Botanical Garden. The project serves 348 students. The programs are right after school, on site, 3:30-5:30, four days each week, Monday - Thursday.

Each day starts with academic skills and homework reinforcement, including Exemplars math challenges. Exciting hands-on, project-based Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) activities follow this. Academic enrichment aligns with the school-day curriculum.  CLCs target a sub-set of highest-risk students with a focus on English Language Learners (ELL) and homeless children. Expected outcomes are increased academic success and proficiency in core areas, and social and emotional learning.
