United Way invests in summer programs. to keep youth on track for hool success Research shows that students lose academic ground during the summer months when they are not routinely in a traditional academic setting. This problem increases substantially among low-income students who have limited access to thriving sum- mer learning programs and resources. These types of youth asset-building programs are criti- cal during this season when so many youth throughout Dela- ware have increased amounts of unstructured or unsupervised time that could lead to risky behavior. To combat the summer aca- demic slide, United Way of Delaware is investing $85,000 in supporting 14 summer camps and enrichment programs across Delaware to serve more than 1,000 youth. These programs focus on positive youth develop- ment, college preparation and career readiness programs plus expose youth to arts, sports, hands-on activities, and academic development, all while fostering meaningful relationships. Ten of these 14 programs have enrolled 9- to 17-year-old youth from low- income families throughout the city of Wilmington.
