As part of our Basic Training Academy, corps members had the opportunity to have in-classroom training by putting on two summer schools. We were able to partner with two of our schools to invite nearly 300 students to a free summer school where students participated in math, literacy, Starfish Corps, physical education and a fun field trip to the Tech Museum.
Not only was summer school awesome in terms of getting the students ready to be back in school, but it was also a great opportunity for our corps members to put their trainings to work and to reflect on what they learned. After seeing the success of our week-long summer school, we are thrilled to see what our corps can accomplish once they start their school year on Wednesday, August 25th!
