Welcome to the Illinois Quality Afterschool Program

AIR provides technical assistance and professional development to Illinois 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLCs). We hope you will take some time to explore the resources on our website-workshop and conference archives, webinar recordings, newsletters, and resource bulletins. Do you have a question about afterschool? Illinois 21st CCLC grantees can request technical assistance from the Illinois Quality Afterschool team or you can join our private Facebook group and ask other grantees for feedback.
