When children don’t participate in summer learning programs, they may start school 4-6 weeks behind. Cummulatively, this can result in students falling behind 3 grade levels by 5th grade!
HOW DO MY DOLLARS CREATE CHANGE?
United Way Summer Smarts is an initiative that provides summer reading and nutrition programs to local children.
During the summer of 2018:
- 2,800 children participated in quality summer programs
- 76% of students attending Summer Smarts-supported programs maintained or improved reading proficiency
Help us to serve 3,000 children in 2019!
