Earlier this week we had the opportunity to visit with and mentor some amazing students by participating in the United Way’s Fun in the Sun and Lunch Bunch program! Fun in the Sun is a 6 week summer learning program for local academically and financially at-risk children and families. The program directly addresses summer learning loss and the achievement gap between low-income students and their middle/upper-income peers. Lunch Bunch allows local volunteers from professional organizations like ours to come spend their lunch hour with the children, serve as positive role models, and a have a ton of fun!
We had a blast getting to know the students and can’t wait to go back! In the meantime, you can find us practicing our four square and jump rope skills in the DBNTM parking lot.
