Support Summer Learning Programs

The benefit of summer programs is well-documented, and support for public funding to back these opportunities is high. When the school year ends, children in high-poverty environments struggle. Kids loseprecious time during the summer months to continue their learning. It’s also a hard time for families to secure basic needs for their children like healthy food and safe places to spend their days.
