Hasbro and United Way invite GCRI members to see the dynamic learning that takes place when schools are closed for the summer through the Hasbro Summer Learning Initiative (HSLI).  Site visits are available at 14 sites across the state, from July 12-August 15.

Each program offers a six-week, service learning-oriented, experiential curriculum that is designed and delivered via a collaboration of school-day and community-based educators. The programs are working to narrow the achievement gap – half of which studies attribute to unequal access to summer learning. More than 1,100 Rhode Island youth will benefit from the initiative this summer, and the goal is to provide this opportunity to thousands more.

The visits to these sites allow guests to witness the progress being made to combat summer learning loss. Visits last one hour.  If you are interested in participating, please contact Joseph Morra at joseph.morra@uwri.org.
