SSLP students arrive early (Tuesday, June 8) before the mandatory Orientation Week for all other new volunteers which begins on Sunday, June 13. The first group of Families arrive on June 20 for a week-long stay.

Kids' Food Basket

For over seventeen years, Kids' Food Basket has been a force for attacking childhood hunger to help young people learn and live well. One in four Michigan children struggles with hunger, robbing them of their energy, health, and dignity. Our promise is to nourish kids bodies and minds, grow sustainable food, learn from hands-on experiences and engage as a diverse community to solve childhood hunger. A lack of consistent, nutritious food limits cognitive development, leaving kids unable to concentrate in school.

Sarasota County Campaign for Grade-Level Reading through a 2Gen Lens

In 2012, Alta Vista Elementary School launched Eagle Academy, a free summer program for children entering Kindergarten. Over the years this program grew, evolving into a model program with incredible outcomes for both children and their parents. Today, four of Sarasota’s highest poverty elementary schools (based on free/reduced numbers), offer a free 6 week summer program to children with a weekly Parent University. New students have the opportunity to become acclimated to their school while existing students continue to hone skills that they need to be effective learners.
