Shared goal(s): Provide student access to learning technology, Support youth during out-of-school time activities
This summer’s program emphasized social-emotional wellness at a time when our students desperately needed community and connection. Aim High’s engaging and culturally relevant project-based curriculum was adapted for distance learning. Aim High focuses on academic engagement and social-emotional support in the name of preventing summer slide and closing the achievement and opportunity gap.
