It's that warmest and sunniest time of the year again in Alaska, when the sun never sets, and the fun never stops; Summer Learning Week! National Summer Learning Week (July 8th-13th) is a national advocacy celebration aimed at elevating the importance of keeping kids learning and ensuring they return to school in the fall ready to succeed. These programs help maintain academic ability, get kids involved in their community, embark on outdoor adventures, or try something entirely new!
This Summer Learning Week the Alaska Afterschool Network wants to highlight four diverse programs that have been working to bring summer opportunities to children throughout the state. We hope these highlights will demonstrate the importance and success of summer programs across Alaska.
