The center has been part of New London since 1970 and provides a number of services during the school year, including before- and after-school programs, homework and reading guidance, and assistance such as food vouchers and clothing. When school lets out for the season, the staff and volunteers keep up their work with summer enrichment programs and teen life and career skills workshops.
The programs offer something for children to do and a nutritious snack to boot. That goes well with the theme of the song here, Beyonce's "Move Your Body." The singer recorded the tune as a workout soundtrack for Let's Move!, an initiative launched by First Lady Michelle Obama to combat childhood obesity.
