About this grant
This grant to Synergy Enterprises, Inc., will provide funding for the 2009 21st Century Community Learning Centers Summer Institute. The 21st Century Community Learning Centers initiative provides grants to innercity and rural schools working in close cooperation with community organizations and other education and youth development agencies to provide afterschool programs outside of regular school hours for children in a safe and smart environment. The purpose of this three-day conference is to provide workshops to familiarize grant recipients with grant administration assistance and successful strategies in implementing high quality afterschool programs. The annual summer institute is held in partnership with the U.S. Department of Education.
