Bell Power Scholars Academy
Each year thousands of children are plagued by learning lose at the close of Public Schools for the summer. With few activities, most of them experience a summer that will create an education barrier when they return to the classroom for the fall. The Y BELL Power Scholars Academy at YMCA of Metropolitan Washington offers a program that seeks to solve the achievement gap problem of our youth by providing vigorous academics and STEM activities five days a week for 6-8 weeks each summer.

- 12 certified teachers and assistants that deliver transforming educational experiences.
- Field trips to the University of Maryland to promote a college-going culture.
- Distribution of paper, pencils, and other supplies needed to prevent summer learning loss for over 120 scholars per site.
