Albany Area YMCA, Albany, Georgia

Erin Hutchins has been working as the 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, to support children’s academic and social development. Using funding from two 21st CCLC grants, one for Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School and one for Alice Coachman and Live Oak Elementary Schools, Erin purchased the AfterSchool KidzLit, AfterSchool KidzMath, and AfterSchool KidzScience programs from Center for the Collaborative Classroom (CCC). 21st CCLC’s results with these children during the 2014–2015 school year are amazing. Here is her story.

LA’s BEST After-school Enrichment Program, Los Angeles, CA

We use KidzLit, KidzMath, KidzScience, and Science Explorer. Implementation varies by site and the number of participants. LA’s BEST serves 28,000 children on a daily basis. Each site is expected to conduct literacy, mathematics, and science-related activities, as these subject areas are part of LA’s BEST Core Components. The KidzLit, KidzMath, and KidzScience programs are available at sites to enhance the activities.

YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg, St. Petersburg, FL

The YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg has several of its after-school sites using KidzLit. The Y-Achievers academic after-school program at the Harbordale YMCA implemented the curriculum last year as a supplement to its current curriculum, as did Sexton Elementary YMCA in its YRead program. The Westgate Elementary YMCA Summer Camp used the K–3 KidzLit curriculum in the summer of 2012 to test the efficacy of the curriculum during the summer months in an effort to prevent summer learning loss. We are awaiting the results of the fall reading assessment from the school district to see what the effect was on the students. We are using KidzLit and KidzMath daily at each site, each of which serves between 60–100+ students.
