Achieve Summers is a five-week summer school experience for rising 1st – 5th graders that combats summer slide with rigorous and engaging academics and a mentoring program. High school volunteers are a critical component of the summer program where they support extended learning experiences for elementary students and serve as their mentors. Volunteers lead enrichment tracks (art, music, culinary, or STEM) in the afternoons on Monday through Thursday from June 11th to July 12th. Volunteers earn 25 service hours per week of engagement.

Our Achieve Summer sites for the 2018 are:

Earlington Heights Elementary

Goulds Elementary

Jesse J. McCrary Elementary
