Summer Power Academy is a seven-week enrichment program that engages students in experiential learning activities and immersive field trips throughout New York City. Participants improve their STEAM skills and prevent summer reading loss - setting them up for year-round success and supporting long-term empowerment.
Each summer, the program culminates in two community events: Olympic Day, which features field events, team-building exercises, and health, fitness, and nutrition activities, and Cranium Crunch, an all-site science fair.
