Mayor Eric Adams announced Friday an expanded summer program for elementary and middle school students.
Enrollment for the Summer Rising program begins in early April and is being run by the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development and the New York City Department of Education.
“Our children grow every day, and we need to take advantage of summer — especially given the challenges of the past few years,” said Adams.
“Summer is a critical moment to provide our young people with fun, engaging, and relevant opportunities to learn and grow, and we’re thrilled to partner with community-based organizations across New York City to make this the greatest summer yet,” said DOE Chancellor David C. Banks.
Summer Rising will highlight activities to develop students' interests, build skills and create new experiences as well as helping them feel more socially connected.
Department of Youth and Community Development-funded community-based organizations will provide K-8 programming at DOE schools in all five boroughs. Six weeks of programming for middle schoolers and seven weeks for elementary school students will be available in July and August.
Seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, with spots set aside for students who are recommended for additional academic support over the summer.
