Power Scholars Academy

In the Y, we believe in the potential of every child. We also know that not all children have access to the resources and support that make it easier to reach this potential. One specific way this plays out for many children is a steady slide backward in academics, especially in the summer months.

Power Scholars Academy is a 5-week summer learning experience that combines academic instruction with fun, hands-on enrichment activities, field trips, and service projects. The program, co-created by BELL and YMCA of the USA, is designed to help scholars gain new skills and confidence so they are prepared to enter school in the fall ready to excel and reverse the summer slide in academics.
