On Friday five programs (Horizons at Dedham Country Day, The Steppingstone Foundation, IBA, Sportmen’s Tennis & Enrichment Center, Boston PIC) and Boston Public Schools joined Boston Beyond over lunch to share challenges and successful strategies in delivering academic and enrichment content over the summer. Summer providers shared their challenges to ensure enough planning time for both, and that they are meeting both their academic and youth skills development goals. Helpful tips like planning field trips early to secure free or discount rates, finding other community partners to come in to offer instruction to youth, and different ways to measure the benefit of enrichment were all discussed. The conversation offered lots of great new resources and connections.
Thank you to the program who came and shared great resources. We hope to see you at lunch next month to talk about reducing your no-show rate and maximizing attendance!
