The YMCA of Greater Kansas City is partnering with four school in the Kansas City area to combat summer learning loss by providing longer summer school. All of the schools serve students entering the first and second grades, and school offered classes for students up to the fifth grade.
The YMCA introduced its Summer Learning Loss Prevention Program to Kansas City’s Satchel Paige three years ago. This year, the organization earned federal grants to expand the program into four schools. The Kansas City-based Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation has also provided financial support.
