National Summer Learning Association: Scholastic Summer Challenge Champions


The vision of the National Summer Learning Association is for every child to be safe, healthy, and engaged in learning during the summer. To realize that vision, its mission is to connect and equip schools and community organizations to deliver quality summer learning programs to our nation’s youth to help close the achievement gap.

The National Summer Learning Association serves as a network hub for thousands of summer learning program providers and stakeholders across the country, providing tools, resources, and expertise to improve program quality, generate support, and increase youth access and participation.

The Association offers professional development, quality assessment and evaluation, best practices dissemination and collaboration, and strategic consulting to states, school districts, community organizations, and funders. Its efforts are focused on achieving the following results:

  • Increase the number of providers offering high-quality summer learning programs to young people living in poverty;
  • Increase the number of organizations and policymakers that identify summer learning as a public policy priority; and
  • Increase funding for high-quality summer learning programs for young people who currently lack choices and opportunities.
