Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers

Learning outside of school.

These free Northwest Community Action Center programs offer kids and their parents extra learning opportunities during non-school hours.

Our approach to 21st CCLC

Learning doesn’t need to stop when the last bell rings at school. Now Lower Yakima Valley children in grades K-12 can keep gaining knowledge and skills during non-school hours. Kids can explore things like STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), art and music, robotics, or community service. Parents of kids in the programs can learn, too. They can take adult classes on things like English as a Second Language (ESL), parenting, and computers. We also have family nights.
