Your Support Matters on Horizons Giving Day

Posted on

Horizons Giving Day is May 18! 

Thousands of students and families need extra support as they recover academically, socially, and emotionally from the pandemic, and access to these opportunities is not equal. Horizons programs have been successfully providing out-of-school time support to students for over 25 years, and our work -- and your support -- have never mattered more.

Schools and districts are looking for ways to help students and families. With educators feeling burnt out and overwhelmed, we can't expect them to do it alone. Partnering with long-term learning organizations like Horizons creates a community of support for both students and educators, and introduces new, exciting ways of teaching and learning. Horizons also provides one-on-one support and personalized learning experiences, helping each child see growth. Especially for our nation's youngest students, who have missed out on critical early learning opportunities due to COVID, additional support from programs like Horizons is non-negotiable to ensure students gain essential reading and literacy skills.

Luckily, Horizons programs nationwide are ready to help, and Horizons National is ready to bring our highly replicable, proven program model to more students. We know Horizons works: Horizons students gain an average of 6-12 weeks of grade equivalence in reading and math skills over each 6-week summer session. Students come back year after year to form strong relationships, achieve significant learning gains, improve their self-confidence and social skills, and learn to contribute to an inclusive community. They go on to graduate from high school and attend college or other post-secondary training. They make a positive impact on their communities. Now is our chance to bring Horizons to more students, to help ensure an equitable recovery for all.

Join us on Horizons Giving Day, May 18 and help Horizons programs reach new students and communities. Visit our website to become a fundraiser and learn more about how you can make a positive impact on students' pandemic recovery!
