Summer Learning Week

National Summer Learning Week

National Summer Learning Week is a celebration founded by the National Summer Learning Association, dedicated to elevating the importance of keeping kids learning, safe, and healthy every summer, ensuring they return to school in the fall ready to succeed in the year. The Flint & Genesee Literacy Network, along with partner organizations, is presenting National Summer Learning Week for Flint and Genesee County. Our 2020 effort—spanning Monday, July 6, through Saturday, July 11—will emphasize the importance of summer learning opportunities. A series of online learning activities, and events are planned to reduce summer learning loss across Flint and Genesee County.

Who Participates in Summer Learning Week?

EVERYONE! Our work is based on the simple idea that summer—a time that is easily overlooked yet critical to educational development—is bursting with possibility, and instrumental in closing the achievement gaps that riddle our communities more vulnerable children. By casting a spotlight on summer learning loss, and galvanizing parents, educators, legislators, and community organizations to embrace the power of summer learning, we have created a space for greater achievement and potential for all children.
