SummerPlus 19 is a Wrap!


Arts4Kids


Arts Ed Newark just wrapped up its sixth year of a successful partnership with Newark Board of Education’s Office of Expanded Learning Time  (ELT) in providing over 2,000 Newark students this summer with meaningful arts enrichment during SummerPlus, the city’s summer learning program. This partnership is an important example of how collective action can elevate positive impacts for Newark youth.


Arts4Kids

Serving 250 students at Camden Street School in grades six to eight during its pilot year, Project Plus—a summer learning program of the Newark Public Schools (NPS)—was launched in 2013 with the support of Victoria Foundation and Prudential Foundation. Summer learning loss, which more heavily impacts low-income youth, is recognized as a factor in widening the achievement gap. The pilot program was implemented with the goal of increasing summer school attendance, by developing and presenting a fun and engaging summer learning experience.


In 2019, our partners brought African drumming, Modern Dance, Paper Quilting and more to 10 school sites, free of cost. This program is made possible by the support of the Victoria Foundation.
