    The Pemberton Township Schools Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Program provides high-quality afterschool programs to 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students at Busansky and Denbo-Crichton Schools FREE of CHARGE. For the 2021-2022 school year, we will operate every day - after normal school hours - from 2:50 - 5:50 at Denbo-Crichton and from  3:50-6:50 at Busansky.   The 21st Century staff members create activities that coincide with what students are learning in school, and combine cross-content information and 21st Century skills acquisition through project-based learning opportunities. In an enjoyable, kid-centered setting, the program provides opportunities for experiential learning, problem solving, self-direction, creativity, exploration, and expression. The activities engage students in learning and even help prevent “summer learning loss” through a 4-week summer program.  The Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) are 100% federally funded under Title IV of the Every Student Succeeds Act, through the New Jersey Department of Education. 

    During normal onsite programming, daily snack and transportation are also provided.  

    We realize that this past year was a very challenging time for parents and students as it related to COVID, distance learning and all of the new ways that families had to adjust.  We want you to know that the Pemberton Township Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Program continues to be here to support you!  Enrolled students will participate in engaging activities that will include interesting and interactive content.  Parents are encouraged to enroll their children in the 21st Century program and use our platform as another Pemberton Township support and tool.  Our program staff are all Pemberton Township staff members, and provide academic, social, and emotional support every day - after school hours.  This support can include: help with academic and homework content, instructional support and/or reinstruction of skills, social-emotional strategies to help address related struggles, enrichment content, community partners supplemental support and content,  and other related needs. 

    We are here to help!!!
