Extended Learning Time

Welcome to the 21st CCLC Enrichment Program! This program is an extension to the academic day and has specific elements of program design.


Through our Enrichment Programs, we aim to provide our students with a quality Extended Learning experience. Our programs at each campus offer variety of hands-on activities, expressions through the arts, club options, and much more! We welcome all families to share a wellness and enrichment experience to remember.

Program Mission and Theory

The mission of the EMHCS Enrichment Program is to provide students and their families with an afterschool bilingual environment where they feel safe and motivated to receive academic, social, and emotional support, and participate in enrichment activities. Participants will receive family support services, learn to access community resources, and believe in the college dream.


The goal of our program is to educate the minds of children, develop their character, and address social-emotional needs. Extended Learning Time at EMHCS is intended to emulate the structure and essence of a quality school-age program. We aim to enrich participants in a way that they become assets to the communities in which they live.


The Enrichment program is supported by our CEO, School Principals, Education Coordinators, Program Coordinators, Community Partners, and support staff. We further encourage our students to believe in themselves, achieve their goals, and succeed as productive citizens of their community.
