Chesterbrook Community Foundation operates the Chesterbrook Learning Center and the Dana Court Learning Center; each is located in a low-income public housing development in Waltham, Massachusetts. Both Centers offer free after-school programs for children and evening programs for teens. The Learning Centers are led by dynamic and engaged directors who work with the Waltham Public Schools to help each child achieve academic success. Bentley University Service-Learning students also staff the Learning Centers, serving as tutors and mentors. For more information on each of our two sites, click on "Learning Centers" above.

Funds are always needed to keep these valuable programs operating. Every dollar makes a difference.
