Our Program

The Young Warriors Summer Learning Program

Extensive research has shown that children who do not have access to quality learning opportunities and healthy stimulation during the summer can fall nearly three grade levels behind their peers by 8th grade. The Young Warriors Summer Learning program strives to help close that gap.

The program focuses on STEM-based learning (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and continues to be rooted in the ideals of leadership and civic engagement. Over 1,300 students have been positively affected by the program. Results show an average gain of 30% in math and science competencies.
