What is the summer slide?
The summer slide is the tendency for students, especially those living in low-income households, to lose academic ground over the summer. This slide happens because of an opportunity gap - the inability to access enriching, constructive summertime experiences.
We offer a range of academic and healthy youth development activities free of charge over the course of our six-week summer program to bridge this opportunity gap including:
- Reading & Writing practice
- STEM Activities
- Arts & Crafts
- Dance & Music lessons
- Field Trips
- Confidence building challenges like swimming + hiking
