CAPE Announces Expansion of 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) Programs

New CAPE after-school programming at Douglas Taylor and Arthur R. Ashe Jr  Elementary Schools in Chicago and Turner Elementary in West Chicago, IL.

Chicago and West Chicago IL – The Illinois State Board of Education approved a $540,000 grant to CAPE that will include an expansion to Chicago and District 33 schools as part of a 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) after-school program starting in the 2021-2022 school year and continuing until 2025.

Each school offers classes for students that qualify for the program in addition to a parent art class. Through this collaboration, CAPE, Chicago Public Schools, and District 33 bring local staff and teaching artists together to offer a comprehensive arts-integrated program for students and their families.
