The Bridge Downeast offers a 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) afterschool program during the school year. The program provides kindergarten-8th grade students with homework assistance, tutoring, EOG test prep, remediation, and team building activities.

The Bridge Downeast Afterschool Program is held at the Ramsey Center on Harkers Island and runs Monday through Thursday from 2:45pm- 6pm. Students will be offered an after school snack, as well as help with homework and enrichment activities.

This is a free program for students in the Down East Community. Funding for this program comes from a 21st CCLC grant and donations.

21st CCLC after school program off to a great start!

In September 2020 The Bridge Downeast After School reopened it's doors after closing in March 2020 due to COVID-19. We have taken all the necessary precautions to make sure our facility is a safe place for our students to come and get help with homework during the pandemic. We opened from 12pm-6pm and provided help with virtual school and homework during the first couple of months of school. On October 19th, 2020 we went back to the hours of 2:45pm-6pm when our school system went back to in person learning for kindergarten to 8th grade. We have had a pretty awesome year even with COVID-19.

Our plans for the 2020-21 year include continuing to offer support for families and their connection to the teachers in the local schools. Collaboration as well is an important piece in strengthening the academic achievements of all the students.

Thanks to the amazing generosity of our community through donations, we were able to have a holiday party for our students. We had a pizza party complete with cookie decoration and present opening. It was an awesome way to send the students off for holiday break.
