Did you know?
In the summer, students can lose academic gains made during the school year, accumulating from year to year. Further, more than 80% of children from economically disadvantaged families lose reading skills over the summer (Build the Foundation).
Summer learning programs offset learning loss and prepare youth for an easy transition into the next school year!
How can you help?
