The Forum for Youth Investment grieves with the school community of Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. We join in mourning and offer our condolences in response to this horrific act of senseless violence toward children and their teachers.
This summer, extra resources and extra attention are being focused on summer learning opportunities. This extra attention and funding are increasing opportunities for high-quality and coordinated summer programs that support both young people’s academic and social and emotional growth. Through the Wallace Foundation’s National Summer Learning Project, our knowledge base of how to stand up, structure, and implement effective school district and partner-led summer programs has greatly increased.
