During the summer, many children are left unsupervised for several hours every day. This lack of supervision leads to children hanging out in dangerous locations throughout Poughkeepsie and being exposed to drugs, gang violence, and other illegal activities. When school is not in session, many children do not have access to healthy meals or food at all. Study's have proven that low-income students lose 2-3 of reading and math achievement to the lack of access to academic activities. While summer care options are available, most families do not have the resources to enroll their child in a program that will provide activities, fun academic resources and positive social interactions.
