21st Century After School Grant

21st Century Community Learning Center

Our 21st Century program sites at Wayne Trace Jr./High School, Paulding Elementary, Oakwood Elementary, Antwerp Elementary and Lincolnview Elementary are successfully licensed through the Ohio Department of Education and fully staffed with certified teachers. We are near or exceeding capacity at all of our sites, two of our elementary sites have waiting lists. We are currently looking into the possibility of partnering with Defiance College for their education students to volunteer and earn practicum hours by assisting our staff with small group tutoring and homework help.


A large portion of our after school program is focused on providing academic supports for students, however staff also builds in opportunities for college and career readiness activities and youth development. The students at WTHS recently took a tour of the Paulding County Jail and met with Sheriff Landers about what it takes to be in law enforcement. Paulding Elementary students wrote letters thanking local veteran's for their service. The letters were shared at the Elementary Veteran's Day program. Oakwood students volunteered to rake leaves for a family in need of assistance. Antwerp Elementary hosted their first Family Math Night entitled, "Wild for Problem Solving." Families rotated math stations that required them to practice estimation, logic and strategy. Lincolnview Elementary students recently enjoyed a canvas painting class with a local artist.
