Summer time means enrichment camping, travel, and field trips—for many youth. But it is often a time of learning loss for many students, especially those from low income families. The Y is helping kids succeed this summer through the- Power Scholars Academy

The Y and BELL (Building Education Leaders for Life) doesn’t just tackle summer learning loss- It builds strong youth, academically, physically, and emotionally. The program partners with local schools to support k-8 students in Literacy, Math, Enrichment activities and STEM and the arts, along with a health curriculum. The achievement gap widens over time, kids from low-income families often start school unprepared. Despite progressing at the same rates during the school year, gaps widen each summer— and students fall farther behind their peers.92% of parents report an improvements in scholars’ confidence and attitude towards school and learning. This program is located at Maryvale Family YMCA
