Summer Learning Program
Young Warriors Summer Learning Program
|The Young Warriors Summer Learning Program is an eight week academic enrichment program offered to students living in and around under-served communities in Dallas. Over the summer enrolled children are instructed in English and Math. In addition, life skills are included in the curriculum; they’re schooled in the value of service through volunteerism and leadership. Getting the parents involved has improved the success rate of this program; both students and parents sign contracts making them accountable for attendance and behavior.|
The Program operates Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm in a classroom environment and is led by qualified instructors from Big Thought.
