Give a Summer is currently working in the Boston area because of the city's leading summer efforts as well as Give a Summer's ability to make a long-term commitment to work in the city. Below, we share the progress on our initiatives to date:
- Working with schools to help them understand what their kids do and do not do over the summer and how they can help more of their students access summer opportunities. Over 2 years, Give a Summer has worked with 6 schools and an in-school program, surveying over 1400 students and 200 parents.
- Leveraging mentor organizations to help their mentees get excited about and engaged with great summer opportunities. Give a Summer is currently piloting this work with the DREAM program - at the link is the material we've prepared for this work.
