EVENT DATE: Oct 04, 2014
We are raising funds to provide 50 $100 scholarships for the the Summer Adventures in Learning (SAIL) program. SAIL, which is held in East Syracuse, provides 6 weeks of summer education for children from all over Central New York, with or without a diagnosed learning disability. This program makes a huge difference in lessening the "summer slide", or the amount of knowledge that they lose over the summer. A student said it best when he wrote a thank you note at the end of the program.
"I want to thank you all for the knowledge I have received. I remember the kid that really, really needed help…and that was me. But, I’ve gotten so that I don’t need that help anymore like math, reading and other things like that. I’m also able to express myself a lot more.”
Being able to express oneself is what we all want to do, but for many children their learning disability makes this very difficult. SAIL is a great program to help children with reading, math, computers, social skills with music and art thrown in for fun!
