Summer by the Numbers



“Let’s make sure every young person knows that in America,
we’re all committed to helping them achieve their dreams.”

-President Barack Obama

The National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) is a key partner in the Summer Opportunity Project, a multi-agency effort led by the White House to provide support to communities for their young people during the summer.

To achieve the goals of the initiative, NSLA will create a national best-practices knowledge base and network that equips cities, towns and counties to provide summer learning, meal and job opportunities to all children and youth who qualify for free and reduced-price meals.

NSLA will also bring together community stakeholders multiple times per year, provide professional development to summer providers, develop and distribute valuable resources, generate public awareness through events like National Summer Learning Day on July 14, and advocate for supportive policies.

Additionally, NSLA is collaborating with the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and a number of municipal and nonprofit leaders to develop service and service-learning projects that will enable up to 20,000 youth to gain new skills and earn money for college.
