Summer has arrived, which means we are getting ready to start our Summer Porch Visits!
Summer Porch Visits mobilize community partners towards our common goal of boosting enrollment for the 2021-2022 academic year. Each family receives a phone call from a trusted community member and a visit to their front porch provides wraparound resources and critical academic materials.
Last year, Summer Porch Visits visited 1,000 homes to provide resources and promote enrollment. Community partners also delivered backpacks with grade-level appropriate instructional activities to students.
Help us meet students where they are!
