Keep the Learning Flowing
UCR University Extension has been a leader in summer youth programs for almost 40 years, educating and entertaining kids from ages 8 to 18. Teachers and parents know that the achievement gap widens when kids aren't in school, and that summer learning has a positive impact on both academic and social-emotional development. Summer learning is FUN, with less pressure and helps kids feel more prepared and relaxed when school begins in the fall--setting them up for SUCCESS right from the start. Programs in STEAM, reading, college prep, etc. keep the LEARNING energy flowing throughout the summer!
