ABOUT

The Birmingham Boys Summer Institute is a summer learning experience for rising fourth-grade male students. The institute is unique in its approach to hands-on learning. It provides 9 and 10-year-old students with lesson plans delivered by award-winning and certified teachers from across Greater Birmingham. Participants and their families will gain academic exposure that supports development in the following areas:
Critical thinking
Project management
Community-oriented outreach
Working collaboratively with others

In addition to learning in a fun and hands-on environment, each participant will be provided with breakfast and lunch.


IMPACT


Youth from Greater Birmingham suffer from high levels of "brain drain" during the summer months. This phenomenon - typically referred to as the Summer Slide - is defined by a measurable loss of academic knowledge from year-to-year. More specifically, according to the National Summer Learning Association, low-income youth lose two to three months in reading each summer, while their higher-income peers make slight gains. Most youths lose nearly two months worth of math skills in the summer months. By the fourth grade, summer learning loss can leave low-income students 2.5 - 3 years behind their peers.

The Birmingham Boys Summer Institute will help your students show measurable decreases in the Summer Slide. We will make your students more academically competitive.
