Project Connection is an after school and summer program that is funded by a grant from the 21st Century Community Learning Center. This is a federal grant distributed to the states through the, “No Child Left Behind Act” of 2001. Project Connection focuses on students, based on grant requirements, and develops after school programing with academic enrichment opportunities along with other activities designed to complement the student’s regular academic programing. We partner with local community groups, agencies, and individuals to provide creative and experiential learning opportunities. Local partners include Berkshire United Way; IS.183, www.is183.org ; Flying Cloud Institute, www.flyingcloudinstitute.org , Multicultural Bridge, www.multiculturalbridge.org ; Berkshire South, www.berkshiresouth.org ; and the Berkshire Botanical Garden, the Brien Center, the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires, Fairview Hospital, The Stockbridge Congregational Church and others. Programs run throughout the year starting in late September and continuing through the spring.
