Center for Success Network


“The Center for Success is respectfully requesting $80,000 from the Skillman Foundation to launch our Summer of Success program. This program will serve 100 students, who are entering second through fifth grade, by creating individualized interventions based on their literacy needs. The Summer of Success program will connect parents, students, schools, and community partners to enrich the summer experience of our students by instilling routine with rigorous academic support. The mission of this project is to support students during the summer to guard against summer slide and allow them to enter next school year with a positive outlook. The Summer of Success will be offered to current CFS students, as well as new students and families as we work to partner with DPSCD Summer Fun Centers. The Center for Success will enhance the enrichment activities at the Summer Fun Centers by strengthening the academic component of the programming being offered.”
