We are joining our friends at the Afterschool Alliance to help save afterschool funding for Community Learning Centers (CLC). Although Children’s Village does not receive CLC support, we offer afterschool and summer academic enrichment to 150+ K-7th graders. We witness the power of out-of-school time programming. It impacts children, families, and our community.
