As our country grapples with racial injustice, our team at Horizons was eager to lift up Black voices and honor the impact that Black educators have had on America’s young people. Today, we celebrate their stories with our Black Voices in Education Card Series, a downloadable digital resource highlighting Black educators. Click here to download the resource!

Ideas from Horizons National
Families and schools often worry about “summer learning loss” – the decline in academic skills that students experience during the summer months. For decades, Horizons has worked to combat summer learning loss by supporting academic and non-academic development through out-of-school learning programs that engage, stimulate, and enrich students’ lives.
When students join the Horizons program, we make a commitment for a minimum of 9 years. This practice of reinforcing relationships and learning over time is at the heart of Horizons’ success at narrowing gaps of opportunity. Recently, a study was published in American Educational Research Journal that supports Horizons’ approach, particularly our belief in the importance of serving students for multiple years.
