Who We Are. What We Believe.
When we nurture and cultivate a child’s natural brilliance and curiosity, there are positive ripple effects throughout every area of life—both for children and their families. The National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) is a national, non-profit organization focused on the powerful impact of one achievable goal: investing in summer learning to help close the achievement gap. NSLA uses the power of research, advocacy, training, and policy to transform America’s neighborhoods and communities, one child at a time.
NSLA’s vision is that all children and youth have access to high-quality summer learning experiences to help them succeed in college, career, and life.
The opportunities for enriching summer experiences, healthy meals, a first job, and more, open endless possibilities and doors to brighter futures for America’s young people.
