The Role of National Service in Improving P-16 Education Outcomes - Tuesday, June 26, 2018, noon - 1:15pm
National Service Programs provide vital support to students across the nation. These programs support students at various points during their academic journey, whether it be support for kindergarten readiness, reading proficiency by third grade, or high school graduation and college success. In fact, more than 44,000 national service members provide in-school and out-of-school support to at-risk youth, serving in almost 12,000 schools, including 1 out of every 4 low-performing schools and 1 out of every 10 charter schools. This resource, if made more widely available to underserved communities, has the potential to dramatically reduce the educational disparities that leave too many students without the educational foundation they need for success in life. Want to help your district or school leverage national service to support student success? This webinar will illustrate the role national service plays in helping communities design and implement locally determined, results-driven, cost-effective solutions to improve student outcomes. It will feature program examples and ways that you can leverage national service in your own community.

Sustaining Summer Learning - Wednesday, July 18, 2018 @ Noon
Families often look forward to summer as an opportunity to rest and relax. However, for low-income families, summer can lead to struggles with basic needs like healthy food and safe places for children to spend their days. It can also lead to learning loss. Research shows at-risk youth fall behind their peers each summer. By the fifth grade, summer learning loss can leave low-income students two and a half years behind their peers.
