This summer I have chosen to join the movement, and will dedicate my time to inspire a generation to rise against injustice and build power through PBHA's Summer Urban Program (SUP). I will be a Senior Counselor at the Native American Youth Enrichment Program (NAYEP), which is one of SUP's 12 day-camps located throughout Boston and Cambridge. Together we serve more than 800 youth and 100 local teens who are integral to our camps' staff network. For seven weeks, we provide quality programming at the affordable rate of only $125.
Each day, I will be in the classroom with ten students, teaching them important math and literacy skills while leading engaging academic enrichment activities to fight summer learning loss. In the afternoon, I will be taking my students on exploratory fields trips throughout Boston and Massachusetts designed to provide them with learning experiences they otherwise would not have. Overall, my aim is to change the lives of my students by giving them the tools to succeed academically and personally in any setting.
At NAYEP which serves the Native American community of the greater Boston area, we are really excited to create an environment in which these kids will be able to gain important skills to achieve success in school while also having the opportunity to develop their sense of self and explore their heritage. We hope these experiences will allow them to become agents for social change in their hometowns.
PBHA's Summer Urban Program relies on your generosity and support to provide high quality programming at such an affordable rate for those we serve.I hope you will support me in my work this summer!
I know I will gain as much, if not more, from this experience than the youth I am working with, and an investment in my summer will not go to waste.
