Register for 2022-23 Afterschool Program

CLC is a new strategy of community engagement. With an integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, the CLC aims to improve student learning and build stronger families and healthier communities. Using school facilities as a hub to deliver programs and services, the CLC brings together partners offering a range of support to students, families and the community. The CLC responds to challenges students face both inside and outside of the classroom with schools as "centers" of the community, open to students and families beyond the school day.

HEF’s CLC Initiative began in collaboration with Henrico County Public Schools (HCPS) in 2015 and we currently have seven CLC sites in Henrico schools. Each school has a site committee that brings outside partners together with school staff to develop strategies that improve the school and increase student success.

Our Full Service Community Schools Learning Centers operate each afternoon that school is in session.
