summer learning programs.
can make summer activities available to young people through schools,
cultural institutions, park districts, and other public and private
agencies. Activities might include programs at recreation centers,
science and art museums, libraries, and camping sites. These programs
are particularly important for low-income children. With limited
access to learning resources at home such as books and computers,
low-income children can suffer serious academic losses over the
summer. Those months need not become a time for losing ground academically
or getting into trouble. With the help of community resources, it
can be a time of productive learning.
