Building Brighter Futures
YMCA Summer Learning Loss Prevention Program
Students who don’t engage in summer learning will fall 2-3 years behind their school level by the 5th grade.
Roger Mumford Homes is combating summer learning loss by being the lead sponsor for young students to attend a month-long, comprehensive summer program. By partnering with the YMCA Summer Learning Loss Prevention Program, Roger Mumford Homes has helped 39 Red Bank West Side third graders enrich their summers with an immersive educational experience.
During the full day program, students are served a healthy breakfast and lunch, and take classes in reading and writing, mathematics, the arts, and physical education.
Statistic show that low-income children lose 2.5 months of reading and math skills during the summer due to a lack of educational reinforcement. The YMCA Summer Learning Loss Prevention Program and Roger Mumford Homes are dedicated to closing this academic achievement gap.
