6-Week Summer Enrichment Program

The aim of Horizons is to mitigate disparities for under-resourced youth. Our summer program includes high-quality core academics with instruction in STEAM, the arts, health and fitness, cultural enrichment, and engagement in community service. We provide confidence-building challenges, leadership training, social-emotional development, and a focus on the mind-body relationship. We provide nutritious meals and snacks which is critical to physical well-being and academic development of students over the summer who are not in school to receive meals.
