The Summer Learning Collaborative, Inc.
At SummerCollab we transform educational outcomes for low-income children by equipping community-based institutions and schools to execute extraordinary summer learning programs. We employ and train top teachers, high school and college students to help them do it. SummerCollab is a nationally recognized program, receiving the excellence award from The National Summer Learning Association in 2017.
SummerCollab focuses intensively on summer learning because leading education researchers today point to the summer opportunity gap as a key cause of the achievement gap. To be precise, two thirds of the achievement gap is attributable to summer learning inequity. To solve this problem, SummerCollab specializes in empowering community based agencies to execute high quality summer learning programs.
Last year, SummerCollab helped nearly 2,000 kids reverse learning loss in vocabulary, phonics and word recognition. This year, we will aim higher. Through our alliances with nearly 40 community partners, cultural institutions and schools, we will engage Delaware’s highest need youth in dynamic, effective learning institutions that meet precise literacy deficits, grow critical thinking skills, and deepen sense of self. With your help, Delaware’s highest-needs kids will explore, learn, and grow during the summertime.
