This one day orientation for new 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) grantees will introduce and explain the culture of ADE 21st CCLC support and monitoring. This training will provide new 21st CCLC program leadership with information necessary for a successful grant implementation and effective management. The orientation will offer an overview of how to get started and provides critical information to meet federal and state grant requirements. Each grantee will leave the training with a reference book, outlining key information on fiscal and programmatic accountability. This orientation will be presented by ADE staff and the leadership from successful 21st CCLC grant programs in Arizona.
New Grantees will be required to attend the New Grantee Orientation. This will be mandatory for principals, site coordinators and district staff of Cycle XI Funding. Those new to 21st CCLC grant management but not Cycle XI are encouraged to attend.

Two New Reasons to Visit y4y.ed.gov
The U.S. Department of Education is happy to announce two new offerings on the You for Youth website:
You can complete the online Family Involvement course in less than an hour, or about 10 minutes a day for one week. You’ll get a certificate of completion as well as ideas and resources to support stronger relationships with students’ families. Forging strong links can help students overcome challenges that have kept them from active involvement with school staff. As you know, good relationships usually don’t happen by chance. The Family Involvement course includes videos, activities, research and practical tips you can put to use right away.
The Exchange is now live! There you’ll find opportunities for interactive discussions with peers and experts through webinars, discussion boards and resource sharing. Use these tools to exchange ideas about creating and implementing effective program practices aligned with You for Youth professional development courses. We can truly support one another toward improved programming through this network. Become an active part of the Y4Y online community!
And Remember . . .
The You for Youth website is available 24/7. It includes resources you can use to orient staff members new to the 21st CCLC program, video discussion guides to jump-start ideas for applying what you learn and much more. Also available are online professional development courses on project-based learning, aligning with the school stay, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), and strengthening partnerships. To stay up to date on what’s available, visit the You for Youth website and sign up for our newsletter today.
The Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs has created an online Web tool that allows users to search for federal grant opportunities by youth topic or federal agency on Grants.gov. The tool uses a filter to search for grants that are likely to fund youth programs. Grants.gov is a Web site that allows users to search and apply for thousands of federal grants.
