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.

We need your help. Your gift provides opportunities including:

  • 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.
