Our Mission

Creating Smarter Summers, Brighter Futures

The National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) is a national, non-profit organization whose mission is to convince, connect, and equip program providers, education leaders, families, and communities to deliver high-quality summer learning opportunities to our nation’s children and youth in order to help close the achievement and opportunity gap and support healthy development.

Go from Good to Awesome

Our work is having an impact. NSLA provides support and training for communities and programs nationwide, tracks the progress of policy changes and government funding, and continues to identify key partners and opportunities to expand the summer learning movement.
