Research shows children lose one to three months of learning every summer. They forget math and reading skills they worked hard to acquire during the school year. Then they have to work even harder to catch up in the fall. GLP and the Puerto Rican Action Board decided to help prevent this summer learning loss with a weekly series of interactive reading sessions.

The PRAB and GLP have an ongoing partnership as part of GLP’s “Culture of Reading Campaign” where three to four times a year GLP donates a book to every student in their program as well as bringing Rutgers University students to read interactively with the students.
