Austin Public Library Summer Associate
Serve with Austin Public Library and help fight summer learning loss which describes the phenomenon of children and youth who are not exposed to brain enriching activities during the summer. Often, this occurs for low-income students and contributes to the widening achievement gap between low-income students and middle/high income students. This gap leads to lower graduation rates of low-income students which in turn leads to economic hardship and a continuation of generational poverty.
