Summer Literacy Programs

The United Way Summer Education Program Convening Group is a network of summer education providers and housing complexes working together to provide enriching educational activities for children in the Sacramento area. As part of the larger Campaign for Grade Level Reading and the Square One Project, the members of the Summer Education Program Convening Group work to prevent the summer slide so that kids are ready to start school the next year and stay on track to graduate.

The group meets monthly throughout the school year. If you are part of an organization that provides summer education, or are part of an organization that would like to provide summer education, please contact us at 916-368-3000. Together, we can  eliminate summer learning loss in the Sacramento region.
