Goldseker Foundation Funds Summer Learning
in Homewood

A $30,000 grant from the Goldseker Foundation will provide summer learning opportunities for children living in the Greater Homewood community of Baltimore.

Awarded to the Teach Baltimore Summer Academy at The Johns Hopkins University, the Goldseker grant will pay for the implementation of summer enrichment programs for students from two city elementary schools Waverly and Dallas F. Nicholas Sr. The grant will also allow the university s Center for Summer Learning to partner with Greater Homewood Community Corp. to publish and distribute a directory of summer enrichment programs available to young people in Greater Homewood.

Based at Johns Hopkins, the Center for Summer Learning develops, evaluates, and disseminates model summer learning programs, stimulates research, and builds public support to ensure that no child takes a vacation from learning during the summer months. Since 1992, the Center's Teach Baltimore Summer Academy program has provided educational summer programs to more than 2,000 students in Baltimore City public schools. Teach Baltimore has recruited and trained 287 students from 45 colleges and universities across the United States to serve as instructors. In the past three years, 21 alumni of the program have accepted full-time teaching positions in Baltimore City.

Capped at ten students per instructor, Teach Baltimore features literacy-based activities in the morning, followed by hands-on math and science projects, educational games, arts and crafts, and enrichment activities in the afternoon. Students also take weekly field trips throughout the Baltimore community.
