New Hope Community Learning Center (NHCLC)

New Hope 21st Century Community Learning Center (NHCLC) is a ministry of The CARE Center funded partly by various grant funds and partnerships. In 2010, The CARE Center and New Hope Elementary School collaborated. They were awarded our first 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) grant from the Alabama State Department of Education, which afforded our students a state-of-the-art, high-quality after-school and summer experience. 

Our goal is to create a safe and caring environment for students where learning is disguised as fun. Our program builds student skills in science, technology, engineering, math, reading, and art. Students also enjoy character education and social-emotional learning programs that teach children how to resolve and cope with many of today’s issues. Additionally, we offer service-learning opportunities which prepare students to give back to their community.

NHCLC is in session during the school year Monday- Friday from 2:45-5:30 PM. We also provide a fun 5-week summer camp experience. NHCLC serves students in grades Kindergarten-12th who are zoned for New Hope Elementary and High School. There is no fee associated with attending our program.
