BELL Summer Learning Opportunities

Untitled Document

Research shows that a lack of learning opportunities outside of school - and in particular, a lack of summer learning opportunities - causes up to 2/3 of the academic achievement gap between children from low-income communities and their higher-income peers. BELL (Building Educated Leaders for Life) closes the "opportunity gap" by partnering with local schools and communities to extend learning time beyond the traditional school day and school year. By bringing the classroom into the community and the community into the classroom, BELL redefines how, where and when learning occurs, so every child has the opportunity to excel. The America Honda Foundation is proud to support BELL.
