COMPASS Youth Collaborative is looking to serve the students and families of Naylor CCSU Leadership Academy through an after school grant. At this stage, COMPASS is in the application process for 21st Century, a federal grant that provides support for after school programs.

If awarded, the COMPASS program will be implemented in October of 2016, for grades 3-8. Stay tuned for more updates and details!

From the US Department of Education: “This program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps students meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, such as reading and math; offers students a broad array of enrichment activities that can complement their regular academic programs; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating children.”
