Together, we will help our children bridge the summer gap!


TIPS’ Mission: To ensure all children have access to high-quality summer learning opportunities that enrich their educational and social experiences, led by certified teachers in students’ natural summer environments.

Research shows that children, especially those in poverty, lose significant academic skills during the summer months.  Our programs aim to combat the summer slide with fun, interactive programs taught by experienced teachers from your community schools.  Instead of bringing kids into school, we meet them where they like to play - in parks, libraries, playgrounds, and even pools!
