Summer Enrichment Program VISTA- Performance Initiatives
 
 
 
Performance Initiatives’ mission is to educate and mentor youth and adults mentally, physically and spiritually by using athletics and fitness, with Olympic-style weight lifting as the foundation. Positive character traits are nurtured in participants in the youth programs. PI runs a summer programs for 8 weeks including, breakfast, lunch, educational component geared towards their summer reading projects, organic gardening, health and fitness, nutrition classes and life skills. PI does not charge for summer camps for youth ages 7-17 that receive free or reduced lunches and cap the camp at 45-50 youth. PI will be moving into a climate controlled space in April/May next to our partner America’s Second Harvest Food Bank, which will allow the organization to offer a full day camp with a dinner meal option. The VISTA will assist with researching and identifying programming to prevent Summer learning loss that would improve upon what is already being used for youth of varies grade and learning levels. This would include creating a resource book for tutors to use throughout the year to assist youth in our tutorial programs. Part of this project will be to identify proven interactive strategies to help youth improve math and reading skills as well as resources to assist in teaching volunteers how to effectively use these resources. One additional outcome will be for the VISTA to document program learnings, data and issues for change/development for the following year.
