COMPASS
The Comprehensive After School System of NYC (COMPASS NYC) comprises more than 800 programs serving young people enrolled in grades K-12.  Through its network of providers, COMPASS NYC offers high quality programs with a strong balance of academics, recreation, enrichment and cultural activities to support and strengthen the overall development of young people.

SONYC
COMPASS NYC’s middle school model, renamed SONYC (School’s Out New York City), serves as a pathway to success for youth in 6th, 7th and 8th grades.  Structured like clubs, the model offers young people a choice in how they spend their time; provides rigorous instruction in sports and arts; and requires youth leadership through service.  Programs are offered three hours each day, five days per week.

Beacon Programs  
Beacon programs are school-based community centers serving children age 6 and older and adults.  There are currently 80 Beacons located throughout the five boroughs of New York City, operating in the afternoons and evenings, on weekends, during school holidays and vacation periods, including the summer.

21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC)
The New York City 21st CCLC Technical Assistance Resource Center (NYC 21st CCLC RC) provides technical assistance and support to all NYC based 21st CCLC grantees. Staffed by a director and two program coordinators, the NYC 21st CCLC RC developed a comprehensive technical assistance support plan that includes: monthly professional development sessions for site coordinators,  grant managers, and program directors; on-site technical assistance visits, coupled with site specific professional development (in partnership with Children’s Aid Society); site monitoring visits (on behalf of NYSED); access to attendance and data tracking software (in partnership with Cityspan Technologies); data merge support in completing the Annual Performance Report; and an ongoing development of a catalog of web-based resources on the 21st CCLC website. The NYC 21st CCLC RC is managed by David Dianora, Director and supported by Laurie Crutcher, Program Manager and Jennifer Macaluso.  

The 21st CCLC program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for children. 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. 

Extended School Day / Violence Prevention
The primary purpose for Extended School Day / Violence Prevention (ESDVP) funds is to support the efforts of school districts with high needs and to ultimately bring all students to higher learning standards. The grantees consist of community school districts, alternative schools and community based organizations.  

For additional information on 21st CCLC and ESDVP, please contact the DOE Grant Managers who work in the Office of Safety and Youth Development. Grant Managers are responsible for overseeing DOE's district 21st CCLC and ESDVP grants and are directly supervised by the Senior Program Manager, Toby Reyes
