In the 21st Century, WE want to HEAR what YOU have to say.

If you’re in a 21st Century afterschool program (District grantees), 6th-8th grade, this is our chance to celebrate you, your club, your class, your school, your artists in residence, and your outstanding programming.

Send us a 3 minute video letting us know why YOUR club rocks…and YOUR votes will send five schools to the 21st Century Chronicles  – Thursday, May 12, 2016!

Celebrating the dynamic 21st Century programming taking place throughout New York City, the Chronicles is a day of music, performances, knowledge-building and creative arts.

STUDENT voted. STUDENT selected. STUDENT powered!

While you’re at it, take a look at last year’s event:

21st Century Chronicle 2015

A Culminating Event for NYC 21st Century District Grants


On Friday May 15th, 2015, fifty students were brought together for the 21st Century Chronicles, a culminating event celebrating the dynamic work that takes place during their afterschool programs.

To participate, they submitted videos detailing their work, and those videos were voted on by other students. Student-produced, student selected, student-powered!

The results were outstanding, uplifting and highly inspirational.
