Achieve Summer

This six-week summer program will engage over 450 rising K-5th graders and 300 high schoolers in stimulating academic learning, varied enrichment activities, and a mentorship program to ensure a joyful and meaningful summer experience. The students, or “Little Buddies,” begin working every day on culturally relevant academic projects led by teachers and spend afternoons attending art, music, culinary, wellness, and STEM classes with their teen mentors or “Big Buddies.” Educators and interns receive daily professional development and a re-imagined coaching cycle to ensure that every member of our program grows and becomes a better leader.
