An interview with Erin Hutchins, program director of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) program at the Albany Area YMCA (Albany, GA), in partnership with the Dougherty County School System. The site supports children’s academic and social development. Using funding from two 21st CCLC grants, they purchased the AfterSchool KidzLit, AfterSchool KidzMath, and AfterSchool KidzScience programs from Center for the Collaborative Classroom. 21st CCLC’s amazing results with these children during the 2014–2015 are recounted here.
