The Challenge

All students deserve the opportunity to succeed.

But unfortunately, opportunity isn't equal. In our community, many students and families are unable to access the support they need, both during and outside of school. This year, COVID-19 thrust summer and out-of-school learning into the spotlight, with many students experiencing what is now called the COVID Slide - an erosion of academic, social, and emotional skills due to disrupted schooling caused by the pandemic, particularly for students in communities most affected by school closures. Horizons Program responds to these increased challenges.
