Because you know gaining an education will open a lifetime of opportunities for them.
Yet success in school takes more than the curiosity, drive to learn, and aptitudes that we’re all born with; it requires resources that foster growth. Children lacking such resources can fall behind and—more important—lose faith in themselves as learners.
“While all students are suffering, those who came into the pandemic with the fewest academic opportunities are on track to exit with the greatest learning loss.”
Youth who have a positive relationship with an adult are five times more likely to graduate!
Teachers who encourage & challenge. Peers to work alongside.
Places where it feels safe to explore, ask questions, and test limits of imagination.
Time to practice lessons, problem solve, and learn how to learn.
This summer more than ever, we need your support to help underserved youth close the gaps on academic learning loss.
