A 21st Century Community Learning Center
Somersworth was selected as a recipient of the 21st Century Community Learning Center project through the Department of Education to develop, plan, and implement an after school and summer learning program for middle school youth, grades 6-8. The continued success and progression of SYC has been a collaborative effort of the Somersworth School District and the Community Action Partnership of Strafford County.
Through this project, a variety of academic and homework support, health and nutrition education, fitness and wellness activities, enrichment programs and community service projects are offered and available to encourage, support, and foster the development of our youth academically, physically, and socially. Somersworth Youth Connection’s intent is to provide a positive, safe, healthy, and enriching environment that will serve to inspire, motivate, challenge, and stimulate our youth.
SYC offers opportunities for parents and families to interact, experience, learn, share, and have fun. We encourage, support, and are committing to providing families with activities, events, and workshops that promote family involvement, address adolescent development, communication skills, and foster positive healthy relationships with families. The success of the program is due to the involvement and support of those in our community: individuals, parents, families and schools, along with the many businesses who volunteer time and share talents to make a difference with our middle school youth.
