Shared goal(s): Prevent summer learning loss
The new program—held in-person all across the state—pairs college students with kindergarten through sixth graders in Tennessee to provide the older students with a paid summer job and the younger students with a chance to reduce academic summer slide (i.e., some of the learning and curriculum content that was either lost or never covered in the spring).
