Keeping youth engaged (and learning) over the summer is no easy task. Parents spend time and resources preventing the summer slide through many enrichment programs.

On top of the normal summer challenges, we know the Covid-19 pandemic has added even more academic and social ramifications for our youth, especially those facing an opportunity gap. As Banyan Community works to curb these outcomes, and prevent the slide, we hope you will join us for an expert discussion on the research, the practice, and the success stories of quality summer programming – an essential strategy to close the gap.

Kari Denissen Cunnien, Executive Director of Ignite Afterschool, will share information about the research and best practices of impactful summer programs. Allison Burns, Banyan’s Elementary Program Manager, will offer insights on our programming that offers experiential learning opportunities, adult connection, and daily structure.

Join us and explore how you can play a role in ensuring successful summer programs are available for all youth.
