One in six children who are not reading proficiently in third grade do not graduate from high school on time, a rate four times greater than that for proficient readers.
Closing the Achievement Gap
YMCA Power Scholars is a 5-week summer learning program with certified teachers and Y staff. The research based curriculum provides books and math manipulatives to the students. In 2019, we served 321 students across 3 counties. Power Scholars students gained an average of 2.5 months of math skills and 3 months of reading skills with a 93% attendance rate.
How Can I Help?
We are asking our RESET Community to make a $5 monthly donation to our Power Scholars Academy to help prevent summer learning loss for at risk-children. Your donation will be used to support students in the greater Rappahannock Area.
