We at the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) stand with all our partners and allies across the country working to support schools, families and students during these difficult, challenging, and unprecedented times.
Our staff are working remotely for the foreseeable future but are proactively monitoring and responding to the rapidly-changing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Like you, we will continue to put the health and safety of our students, families, and staff first as we head into spring break and summer programming. 
A crisis like this makes the achievement and opportunity gaps we are all working to close even more clear. With so many children out of school and so many families home with limited access to educational resources, our Out-of-School Time field is well positioned to be a problem solver and resource as we share our expertise, experience and skills with many in our communities. Please let us know what challenges you are most concerned about, assistance you need, and how NSLA and your peers can be most supportive.

Our Vision

NSLA’s vision is that every child, regardless of zip code, grows and thrives every summer.
