The Daviess County Family YMCA is adding a Learning Loss Prevention Program to its after school program. The learning loss prevention program focuses on math and reading to boost literacy skills, plus enrichment activities to support physical and social-emotional growth.
Not only do children have a safe place to go in the afternoon with the Y, but they can realize who they are and all they can achieve through academic intervention and health and enrichment activities in the after school program.
“The Daviess County Family YMCA is so grateful to the United Way for their generous grant award supporting our Learning Loss Prevention Program,” said Chris Watts, CEO, Daviess County Family YMCA. “We know, perhaps now more than ever, that learning loss prevention programs are pivotal in our youth being able to reach their full potential, and we are proud to offer this program in our afterschool and summer camp programs.”
UWDC has funded nearly $50,000 of Wave II ERI funds to the YMCA learning loss prevention program, which were funds provided by its statement association and the Lilly Endowment. UWDC is excited for this program to potentially serve 100 school children or more to help combat the loss of learning due to COVID.
