Summer Learning

When the school doors close, many children struggle to access educational opportunities and basic needs such as healthy meals and adequate adult supervision. For low-income students these problems are most acute. Summer out-of-school time programs can address these concerns and offer a vital opportunity to expand the learning days each year.
