Summer Learning Loss
It’s estimated that summer learning loss accounts for as much as 85% of the reading achievement gap between lower-income students and their middle and upper income peers.
At YouthBASE, children strive to achieve grade level reading by 3rd grade. We engage children in fun, educational programming including individualized, small group instruction, game based learning, social and emotional learning and field trips. Our program is free of charge.
