IPC Summer Camp 2014 RFP

This announcement solicits summer program applications in 2014 for children and adolescents in Indianola, Mississippi. The purpose of the Summer Camps 2014 Funding Opportunity is specifically to establish innovative opportunities that support youth vocabulary and reading comprehension enhancement, over the summer months, while school is not in session. The goals of the program are to foster vocabulary development, gain an appreciation for literature, improve reading comprehension skills, reduce dropout rates, and minimize loss of knowledge over the summer. Children from families of lower socio-economic status are at greater risk for poor performance in language and literary skills and the summer months tend to widen this gap.
