About Us

SML Good Neighbors, Inc. is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization that works with children who are rising 1st through 6th graders from six elementary schools in Bedford and Franklin Counties. The children are from families with limited resources.

We provide summer enrichment programs at no cost to families. Children attend day camps lasting four weeks from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., five days per week. Carefully selected college interns are the primary facilitators.

The curriculum focuses on reading, writing and enhancement of communication skills. Additionally, daily enrichment programs provide: Nature Education, Peace Education, Cultural Diversity and Global Education. And—the children receivenutritious breakfasts, lunches and snacks.

Additionally, a small in-school mentoring program is provided in two schools and a nutrition program for summer school students in six schools.
