The UC Davis Center for Community School Partnerships will bring together summer

learning practitioners and community-based educators from across the Sacramento region to create a movement to develop and promote quality summer opportunities for youth.


Summer Matters Sacramento mini-grants assist innovative community based educators

working with underserved youth to design and implement high quality summer learning

programs, that address summer learning loss and the opportunity gap.


Summer programs are taking place in a variety of settings – schools, community centers, homes, churches, and college campuses. But often these programs and providers find themselves isolated with few resources, little support, and limited connection to others who share their concern. The mini-grants represent a unique and exciting opportunity to learn and build strengths from colleagues. This is a critical step in the process of transforming summer program efforts from a collection of individuals trying to make a difference into a strong movement for summer education reform.
