After School Program Types

After School Education and Safety Programs (ASES)

The ASES program provides funds to schools and districts that collaborate with community partners to provide safe and educationally enriching alternatives for children and youths during non-school hours. The ASES program is the result of the 2002 voter-approved initiative, Proposition 49. The local ASES programs are created through partnerships between schools and local community resources to provide literacy, academic enrichment and safe constructive alternatives for students in kindergarten through ninth grade (K-9).

21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC)

This state-administered, federally funded program provides five-year grant funding to establish or expand before-and after-school programs that provide disadvantaged kindergarten through twelfth grade students with academic enrichment opportunities and supportive services to help the students meet state and local standards in core content areas. These programs focus on academic achievement and enrichment and family literacy. Eligible entities include districts, cities, counties, community-based organizations and others.
