Identify Resources

21st CCLC programs depend on different kinds of resources to offer engaging activities for students. When examining your program needs, consider the list below. Which resources do you have now, and which could benefit from partnerships?

  • Space: the rooms and locations where activities occur
  • People: site coordinators, teachers, activity leaders, advisory board members, volunteers and mentors
  • Programs and services: the activities available to students and parents; e.g., afternoon snacks
  • Funding: the monies that pay for everything a 21st CCLC program does
  • Materials: supplies for art, music, drama and recreational activities
  • Transportation: buses that safely take students from the school to another location where activities take place
  • Time: the many hours that volunteers and staff contribute to a program
  • Expertise: the specialized knowledge a teacher, mentor or volunteer gives to the program
