As the days get longer and the temperature rises, summer planning kicks into high gear at Banyan. Summertime is particularly challenging for youth and families in our urban neighborhood. Violence keeps our kids inside of homes, and lack of opportunities increase the achievement gap. But, Banyan youth and families have a different type of summer.

Banyan summers provide:

  • Academic enrichment through a variety of experiences from the Arboretum to the Zoos – with a few pools to cool off!
  • Youth employment and leadership development for high school and college youth to implement best practices in community youth development.
  • Community building through field trips in and out of the metro for youth and families.
  • Summer Camps are experiences available for all youth and parents at Banyan!

As you make your summer plans, consider supporting Banyan to ensure we can create a summer full of learning and memory making!
