Community Learning Centers (CLCs) are safe, fun places to go before and after school, evenings, weekends, and during the summer. CLCs offer educational, recreational, and social activities for youth and adults. CLC programs increase student achievement and learning, provide alternatives from being home alone, and offer safe havens from unwanted influences.

- MISSION -

Milwaukee Public Schools' 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CLCs) help strengthen families, reduce crime and improve neighborhoods. Open after school, evenings, weekends and during the summer, the CLCs are committed to learning, enrichment and support activities that help lessen exposure to negative influences. Ultimately, a CLC builds a strong neighborhood and makes our community a better place to live.


- VISION -

Our vision is to unite MPS schools with community organizations, businesses, government agencies, families and neighborhood residents to encourage academic achievement and strengthen neighborhoods. CLCs provide a support system that focuses on positive youth, family and neighborhood development. The 21st Century Community Learning Centers are staffed by caring adults from youth-serving agencies, schools and the community. Their commitment is to provide a healthy balance of learning and fun in a safe and supportive environment.

Young people will have additional hours to learn, which helps increase academic achievement, attendance and graduation rates. Both young people and adults will have more opportunities to develop skills to help them achieve personal success.
